IITG is now a part of Eduroam, a global WiFi roaming programme across academic campuses, through ERNET, India. eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply using their mobile device.
Any faculty, staff or student of IITG, visiting an academic instituion which is a member of the Eduroam programme anywhere in the world may have unlimited internet access by connecting their laptop or mobile devices through the WiFi SSID called “eduroam”. All members from IITG can connect to the eduroam by selecting the "eduroam" SSID and subsequently select EAP method to PEAP and GTC as inner or phase 2 authentication methods and use your complete IITG e-mail address <IITG mail-id>@iitg.ernet.in followed by your mail password. The same settings will work for any EDUROAM enabled location in the world.
In a reciprocal arrangement, any academic visitor to IITG from a eduroam partner academic institution will be able to connect to our campus-wide WiFi using the EDUROAM SSID and will have unrestricted internet access. They will be authenticated by their home institutions. If you are a visitor from another institution, you should follow your institution's instructions to set up your laptop for Eduroam before arriving at IITG.
