The eduroam-US Knowledge Base provides answers to common questions, guides to getting started with eduroam, and details on how to contact the team for help. Have questions or an idea to make this space better? Contact us.

Getting Started

eduroam Admins use the eduroam Federation Manager portal to manage their eduroam deployments. After signing up, use your InCommon or Google credentials to log in and begin setting up eduroam with connections to your IdPs (the way your users log in), SPs (the way your hotspots send traffic to other subscribers), and service locations (where eduroam can be found in the physical world).

What to do next

While we work to update our documentation, our colleagues at GEANT have documentation on configuring your RADIUS servers for eduroam.

During organization-side configuration, use tlrs1.eduroam.us and tlrs2.eduroam.us as your upstream RADIUS server addresses. 

Additional documentation

Below you'll find general help guides, eduroam best practices, and some technical documentation for configuring eduroam on certain varieties of wireless controllers and RADIUS servers.
