You're not always in Oberlin, Ohio. After all, our students and faculty represent more than 50 countries across the globe.

Wherever you are, though, you need simple, fast access to wi-fi. That's why Oberlin offers eduroam, a global wireless network that connects universities and academic institutions around the world.

If you're studying or working at Oberlin, choose the eduroam wi-fi network and log in with your Oberlin email address to get secure, encrypted access here at home. Then when you travel, your device should automatically connect to available eduroam hotspots. There are thousands across the globe, at participating universities, research centers, libraries, museums, and even public spaces such as railway stations and coffee shops.
