What is eduroam

Eduroam is a global initiative where educational institutions agree to share access to their wireless networks with each other.

Charles Sturt University is participating in this global initiative allowing staff and students to use wireless networks at other participating (eduroam) institutions in Australia and overseas.

We in turn allow users from other participating institutions to use the CSU wireless network.

Where can I use eduroam?

CSU now uses eduroam as the single way to connect to wireless if you are on campus or if you are travelling and at a participating institution.

So no matter if you are a CSU staff member, a CSU student or a visitor to CSU from another institution, we all use eduroam to connect.

When on campus -

CSU Staff and Students

When on a CSU campus use eduroam to connect to CSU resources and the internet from most buildings on every campus.

Visitors to CSU

When on a CSU campus use eduroam to connect to the internet and your home institution from most buildings on every campus.

When away from CSU -

CSU Staff and Students

Eduroam is also available at over 500 sites world-wide. For a full list of eduroam participating institutions in Australia, please visit

Usability of this service is different at each participating institution. Visit the support page for each institution to view restrictions and requirements for each institution.

CSU staff need to install the CSU Virtual Desktop - VMware Horizon to access certain internal CSU resources when using eduroam at other institutions.

The use of eduroam is governed by the Australian Eduroam Policy and the CSU Computing and Communications Facilities Use Policy.

For visitors to CSU the Acceptable Use Policy of your home institution applies. The eduroam network is not content filtered and access by staff or students under-18 requires parental consent.
