The Eduroam logoOnce connected, your device should remember your details and automatically connect to eduroam whenever on campus or where eduroam may be available.

To connect, you will need your eduroam username (or identity); this is a mash up of your email address and your username as follows:

username@dmu.ac.uk

  • For students, if the pnumber is p1234567 the eduroam identity is p1234567@dmu.ac.uk
  • For colleagues, use your usual login such as jdoe00 to create jdoe00@dmu.ac.uk
