We know access to a reliable, high-speed internet connection may be difficult in some areas. Luckily, several solutions are available.
The eduroam network provides free, unlimited access to secure Wi-Fi at hundreds of higher education institutions across the nation. There are 97 sites in Florida alone—four in Tallahassee—where you can connect to this service. Find a public space near a local campus, such as a park, where you can pick up a signal and take advantage of the free Wi-Fi. To connect, select the eduroam network and sign in with your FSUID (in the format FSUID@fsu.edu) and password. Visit the Information Technology Services (ITS) website for more information on eduroam.
