If you frequently travel to other educational campuses, you should set up your computer and device(s) to use the eduroam network. The eduroam network is a worldwide collaborative effort to make guest access easier for scholars visiting other higher educational campuses. It allows students, faculty, and staff of educational institutions to use their home campus credentials to receive wireless access at another participating campus. It's recommended you connect to eduroam when on Davidson's campus as well. The steps to connect to eduroam are below.
