Note: We recommend that UofT faculty, staff and students set up and test their computers prior to travelling to a partner institution. Once it is set up, you will have wireless access to any eduroam-enabled institution in the world. While at UofT, you should be using UofT's wireless network (UofT).
You can use eduroam to gain wireless access at universities and colleges other than the University of Toronto.
