UA Little Rock has joined the eduroam federation that allows our logins to be used at other organizations that are also participating in this service. In addition, visiting faculty, staff, and students from other eduroam institutions can use our eduroam wireless network. Eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. The eduroam service allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions.
Connectivity is established by simply opening their phone, laptop, tablet, or other device and joining the eduroam service. More than 10,000 eduroam hotspots are available at universities, research centers, academies, many schools, and other research and education institutions in more than 100 territories around the world.
Wherever you see ‘eduroam’ appear in your list of wireless networks, you can get online.
Please note when your wireless-enabled device scans our network, you may see a different network name depending on your location. See Wireless Networks for additional information for each network SSID (i.e. network names) including How-to Articles with instructions for joining your devices.
UA Little Rock wireless network SSIDs:

Limited to 24-hours, this wireless network only provides basic web access to the Internet. Students, faculty, and staff should never use this network. No university-owned institutional devices should ever be connected to this wireless network. This is for visitors only.
