Eduroam is available on the DePaul University Campus and on participating University Campuses. Eduroam (educationroaming) is the secure worldwide federated network access service developed for the international research and education community. You can find more info at https://www.eduroam.us/
DePaul is participating in this service so that members of the DePaul community will have wireless network access when traveling to participating institutions. At DePaul Eduroam is our primary wireless network and Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni have access to this service.

These directions cover the necessary steps to connect to DePaul’s SecureW2 wireless network on a modern GNU/Linux desktop system. The steps are documented using Ubuntu 18.04 x86_64, but they should work on most systems with a Python version of at least 2.7. If you encounter issues, please contact the Help Desk by phone at 312-362-8765 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 1: Locate the Wi-Fi Icon in the bottom right corner of the desktop.
Step 2: Select the icon and select the network icon from the pop up menu to see a list of available networks.
Step 3: Locate “eduroam” from the list of available networks and double click to select.
Step 4: Select “PEAP” as your “EAP method”, and enter your BlueKey login credentials (email@example.com email address and password), then click Connect. You will be connected to DePaul’s eduroam Wi-Fi network.
Some types of devices may not have the ability to utilize the latest in wireless technology and more specifically the latest authentication methods. Here at DePaul we use the EAP-TLS authentication method which requires the device to install a certificate locally. If your device isn't able to complete the setups describe for devices such as Mac OSX, Android, or Windows there is another option for connecting to Eduroam with EAP-PEAP-MSCHAPv2 set for authentication.
Select the "eduroam" network from your list of wireless networks and click connect. Ensure you are configured for EAP-PEAP-MSCHAPv2
During the setup of the eduroam Wi-Fi network you will need to format your DePaul University credentials as described below:Username: firstname.lastname@example.org (example: email@example.com) This specifies your identity (UserID) and the organization you are part of (@depaul.edu) and BlueKey Password
Once you have entered in your login credentials you should now be connected. **Please note that unlike a setup with a certificate you will have to change the password used in this setup whenever you change your BlueKey password in the future.
