Currently, eduroam is available at more than 5,000 locations throughout the United States and worldwide. A complete list of participating institutions can be found on the eduroam website.

Visitors can access the service by selecting “eduroam” from Florida State’s list of available wireless network connections.

Florida State’s existing wireless networks, FSUSecure and FSUWIN, should still be used on main campus for day-to-day wireless access.
