Please see UBC IT’s eduroam wireless network site for information about how to connect to eduroam.

Note: in some clinical locations, eduroam is broadcast on the 5 GHz frequency band only. Some devices may not be able to connect to this band. You will only see the eduroam SSID appear in your network list if you are able to connect.

If you belong to another post-secondary institution, please contact your institution’s IT help desk for connection information.
