eduroam to Replace GTwifi on August 6
The Office of Information Technology is reminding GTwifi users to reset all network settings to eduroam on their devices by Monday, August 6.
Using eduroam allows Georgia Tech researchers and faculty to use Tech’s Wi-Fi service whether visiting an eduroam member institute locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally. In addition, the service enables members from other schools to log in to their own eduroam service, instead of configuring their device to Tech’s networking service.

The most significant change when configuring eduroam is that the username entered needs to be in the format of "firstname.lastname@example.org." For example, a user with the Georgia Tech account "gpburdell8," should enter "email@example.com" as the username along with the account password.
When making the switch to eduroam, it is important that only one Georgia Tech network be configured on a device at any one time to avoid connection instability. Users must delete their GTwifi account and ensure that each of their devices is configured to connect to eduroam only.
