All Rose Bruford College staff and students, with a valid username/password, should be able to connect to eduroam at any of the thousands of locations worldwide.
When using eduroam at another locations please note the following points:
- If possible, get eduroam provisioned (CAT tool) on your device at RBC before you go (this only needs to done once every couple of years)
- You must have installed our certificate on your device - this is done as part of the CAT provisioning
- If you have a problem using eduroam at another organisation, you should contact the IT helpdesk
- For further information about configuring your computer refer to the connection instructions
- Use your RBC SSO username with @bruford.ac.uk appended as your username for eduroam, e.g. ab1234SPAM@bruford.ac.uk (not your email address if it is different from your username) this is also known as your UPN login
- Use your RBC SSO password as your password
- If you have a “domain” box when logging in, leave it blank
- Do not type your RBC SSO password into any wireless system that uses a web page to login – it won’t work & your password maybe stolen!
- Some eduroam organisations may use a weaker encryption scheme “WPA/TKIP” than the one used at RBC (WPA2/AES). In this case you may need to make a minor change to your settings as per this FAQ article
Accessing restricted resources via eduroam
When using eduroam elsewhere you are connected to that organisations network, not Rose Bruford College’s. Therefore you may need to take additional steps to access restricted RBC resources or eJournals
