As of Feb. 1st, LSUHSC New Orleans is participating in EduRoam, a world-wide consortium of research and educational institutions.
Chancellor Hollier sent out an email on January 25th regarding this new initiative; he stated, “EduRoam is a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. EduRoam allows campus community members at any participating institution to use wireless network services at any other participating institution worldwide.” Our participation will make it easier for visiting students/researchers to use wireless access on campus, as well as allowing our researchers and students to have access as they travel. EduRoam is less than 2 years old and began in Europe. It is anticipated that membership will increas rapidly.
To use when you visit a participating educational/research institution:
ÔÇó Set up your computer to use a wireless network by selecting ÔÇ£eduroamÔÇØ from the list of available networks.
ÔÇó Logon as UserID@lsuhsc.edu, and give your current LSUHSC password.
EduRoam is a new iniative in the United States, but hopefully it will grow quickly. Check out their US map to see participating institutions.
