When attaching to eduroam WiFi users are authenticated via their home institution. If authentication succeeds the user is granted wireless network access.

Further information on eduroam is available from the national eduroam site for Ireland, which identifies eduroam hotspots in Ireland, and from the central eduroam service website, which identifies eduroam hotspots worldwide.
