Access Griffith College Campus at different locations

 

Griffith College has launched Eduroam (EDUcation ROAMing) which allows users from participating academic institutions secure Internet access at any eduroam-enabled institution, it aims to facilitate easy and secure Internet access for roaming educational users.

The architecture that enables this is based on a number of technologies and agreements, which together provide the eduroam user experience: “open your laptop and be online”.

The basic principle underpinning the security of eduroam is that the authentication of a user is carried out at his/her home institution using the institution’s specific authentication method (i.e. your staff or student PC username & password). The authorisation required to allow access to local network resources is carried out by the visited network
The eduroam service is available all around the world.

This service is available immediately on campus at South Circular Road, we expect to add support for it in our campuses in Cork, Limerick and also in GHR over the coming months.
