How do I connect?

Visitors on campus at UWF:

Connecting to eduroam is similar to connecting to ArgoAir.  See Configuring Your Device for Eduroam for specific configurations related to your operating system.   Select 'eduroam' from the available wireless networks and enter your school specific credentials.

UWF students and staff off campus:

Connect to eduroam using your UWF email credentials in the format: <username>@uwf.edu or <username>@students.uwf.edu.  Configurations may vary based on your location.  You may search for the configuration at your location at https://www.incommon.org/eduroam/eduroam-u-s-connectors/ (US only).

Yes! While we encourage UWF users to configure and use eduroam, it is recommended when on-campus to use ArgoAir. ArgoAir provides additional access to campus resources that may be required.

UWF users can use eduroam at any of the eduroam hotspots.
