  • How-to Get Started
    1. On your Internet-enabled device, open the WiFi settings. In the list of available networks, select the eduroam signal.
    2. Enter your username and password at the prompt:
      •    For username, enter your full campus email address (your NetID along with “@plattsburgh.edu”)
      •    For password, enter your campus password (the same password you use to login to campus email, MyPlattsburgh, and Cardinal Cloud Google Apps).
    3. Confirm your access. We recommend that you confirm connectivity to the eduroam wireless signal here at SUNY Plattsburgh BEFORE visiting another participating institution. Once you are done testing the eduroam connection, switch back and stay connected to the “SUNY-Plattsburgh” wireless network while your still on campus; this network provides better performance.

    You may be prompted to accept a security certificate the first time you use eduroam. Accept the security certificate to connect to the eduroam network.

    Once your device is successfully configured and connected to the eduroam wireless network at SUNY Plattsburgh, it should connect automatically when you select the eduroam wireless signal at participating institutions.
