Eduroam is a “worldwide” network (Canada, Australia, most of the European countries) of educational and research institutes. The idea is that students and staff members can access the wireless network on any participating institute. You logon to the eduroam network with your institute credentials and corresponding password. It works for TU/e members on the TU/e campus, which can come inhandy when tue and tue-wpa do not work (which does happen, now and then). It also works on other institutes, although sometimes differences in the authentication implementation prevent it from working.
