About this app

eduroam is a global service for the academic community, facilitating access to internet connectivity when roaming. Find out more at

This eduroam Companion app has been created by Jisc, the UK’s national research and education network provider, to assist eduroam’s international community of users in making best use of the service. It documents the location of eduroam venues worldwide, allowing users to locate their nearest access location.

Users can use the map screen to explore eduroam venues close to them or to plan network access for upcoming trips. The interface allows searching for a specific venue or listing all venues on the current map view. Further details for each venue can be displayed, and if desired the app will create a route to navigate you to a chosen venue.

Please note that this companion app displays the data gathered by the central eduroam service, so any queries or requests for inclusion should in the first instance go to them via the URL above. We’d be really grateful for any reviews or suggestions for the app itself, however.

Jisc is grateful for the assistance of Miro and colleagues in the Geant eduroam service management team in deploying core infrastructure to support this major update.

My University has failed to understand the purpose of eduroam. They are treating it as, in case you have poor internet at home and need internet off campus. Howver, the only nearby "30mile" area it is offered is inside campus buildings. Which are locked over the weekend.

Not sure why there needs to be so many eduroam apps. We have eduroam cat, eduroam companion and get eduroam. None of the names make it clear what they do and eduroam cat doesn't even seem to work any more.

Only provides a map of eduroam locations. Doesn't help you configure the service or tell you any details for login, other than the SSID (eduroam duh) and the security.
