UMass Amherst Chooses eduroam for New Wireless Network

On August 5, 2014, eduroam (education roaming), a worldwide roaming service, replaced the old UMASS-SECURE1X wireless network on campus. Eduroam enables students, faculty, and staff to link in to a broad, multi-campus service that spans thousands of educational institutions in the U.S. and abroad. Once set up, computing devices are 'travel-ready' and will connect automatically to eduroam on campus and at participating institutions.

Faculty, staff, and students can use the XpressConnect wizard ( to set up eduroam on their WiFi-ready computers, tablets, or smartphones.
