The easiest way to access the Eduroam wireless network at UMBC from a computer running Windows is to run the custom installer for your version:
The Windows 10 Anniversary Update broke compatibility with the eduroam installer posted prior to September 29th 2017. If your computer can no longer connect to the UMBC eduroam network, download the updated installer below and rerun it.
|Download Eduroam Installer for Windows 10|
|Download Eduroam Installer for Windows 8/8.1|
|Download Eduroam Installer for Windows 7|
|Download Eduroam Installer for Windows Vista|
After downloading, run the installer:
You'll be presented with a confirmation that the installer will only work if you have an account at UMBC; if you are from another university and are looking for an installer to use eduroam, check cat.eduroam.org to see if one is available for your institution.
Click OK to proceed.
You will then be prompted to enter your UMBC username and password. NOTE: you need to enter your complete UMBC email address, with "@umbc.edu" included. Your username alone will not work.
After entering your information, click Install.
You may be prompted with this message.
Click Yes to proceed.
At this point, the installer will configure your computer to use the eduroam network.
After a few seconds, your computer should automatically connect to the eduroam network. Your list of Wifi networks may look different for your version of Windows.
If your computer doesn't connect, and Windows reports that it can't connect when you select eduroam from the list of wireless networks, then it's possible you entered your username or password incorrectly. In this case, you can simply run the installer again, and it will update your computer's settings. Be sure to enter your full UMBC email address as your username. If for some reason it still doesn't work, you can try configuring the connection manually:
