Siena’s participation in eduroam allows members of the Siena community to seamlessly connect to free wireless when they visit other eduroam participating institutions world-wide. Similarly, it provides seamless access to the Siena wireless network for people from participating eduroam institutions when they visit the Siena campus.  eduroam uses the IEEE 802.1X protocol (WPA2-enterprise) and will place Siena users in the appropriate network based on their credentials.

IMPORTANT: ITS recommends forgetting SienaAir on devices that can successfully use eduroam.  SienaAir requires network registration to function and if your unregistered device chooses SienaAir over eduroam it will not work properly unless it is registered.
