The easiest way to setup eduroam is to use the eduroam CAT configuration tool, available here.

If that does not work for you, try following the old instructions here: RNCM Student/staff setup instructions.

eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain internet connectivity at home and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop.

What this means in practice, is that RNCM students and staff can connect to the wireless networks of other participating education institutions, both in the UK and abroad.

Also, visitors from other participating institutions can access the RNCM's wireless network.

We offer both home and visited services.

Visitors to the RNCM should normally contact their home institution for support, in the first instance.
If your home institution has confirmed that their eduroam service is operating correctly, we may be able to offer limited support. For this, ask reception to contact the IT department.

RNCM students and staff should click here for instructions on configuring your device. Once your device is correctly configured for eduroam at the RNCM, it will work seamlessly at any other eduroam institution, without the need for reconfiguration.

Use of the any of the college's wireless networks, including eduroam, implies consent with the relevant sections of the Janet eduroam Policy, and the RNCM's IT Acceptable Use Policy (Section 2A of IT Policies v1.6). It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with these policies.

Users should be aware, that as with any wireless network, any information sent over eduroam could be intercepted by third parties. You should use encrypted protocols (eg HTTPS) for the transfer of private information, including passwords, wherever possible.

Technical details:
No interception proxies are used.
The eduroam service is offered at our site, Royal Northern College of Music, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9RD.
The eduroam SSID is accessible in the main cafe area, Brodsky, both concourses, the library, all conference/meeting rooms, all studios and performance venues, and a number of teaching rooms.
