WiFI On Campus and Near You

eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world‐wide roaming access service developed for the  international research and education community.  It allows students, researchers and staff from Heriot‐Watt  to obtain Internet connectivity on‐campus and when visiting other participating institutions in 74 territories.   Therefore, it may be possible for you to bring your laptop to a local university library and access the wifi there.  You will then have the same access to resources as you would if you were on a Heriot‐Watt campus.  

Note: Check local government advice and your local institution before making any journeys.
