If you are visiting Dalhousie or MSVU from another Eduroam-affiliated institution, you can use your own home institution’s wireless credentials to access the Eduroam wireless network. If you do not use Eduroam, wireless credentials are available from the registration desk on either campus.

 Set up Eduroam at your home institution first to confirm it works. 

  • Contact your home institution for any help or support for setting up or accessing Eduroam (no matter what institution you are visiting).
