Wireless enhancements implemented this spring will support eduroam as the primary wireless network on the Virginia Tech campus for all students, faculty, and staff. eduroam provides the same level of service on campus as VT-Wireless and makes it easier to get and stay connected, whether you’re on campus or visiting an institution in one of the 76 territories around the world where eduroam is available, including the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. Once you’ve connected at the Blacksburg campus, simply use your Virginia Tech wireless username (PID@vt.edu) and network password to connect at any eduroam location.
On May 17, 2016, the VT-Wireless SSID (service set identifier) will be retired to simplify wireless on campus and enable a strong focus on eduroam. All Virginia Tech employees and individuals affiliated with the university who use wireless Internet access on campus should make sure they connect using eduroam before the end of the 2016 spring semester. You can connect by following the instructions at Connecting to Virginia Tech Wireless eduroam.
Also on May 17th, a new SSID called VirginiaTech will be available, providing a streamlined way to connect to the network. When subscribed to the university wireless network service, employees can use the VirginiaTech SSID to initially configure their devices and connect to eduroam. Department-sponsored or non-sponsored guests will also use the VirginiaTech SSID and connect. The CONNECTtoVT-WIRELESS SSID will be retired to make way for this improved service.
