The “eduroam” wireless network is now available at Baruch! Thank you to the networking team at Baruch and CUNY CIS for getting this done.
What this means is that any user from another eduroam organization can log into the Wi-Fi at Baruch by using the “eduroam” SSID and the login credentials from their home institution. Baruch users can also use their CUNY Login username and password to connect to eduroam both on campus and at any other eduroam institution. Users from other CUNY schools who come to Baruch can also use eduroam and their CUNY Login to access wireless while on campus.
While you will now see the eduroam SSID everywhere on campus, you should continue to use the Baruch SSID for your normal network access if you’re a Baruch student, faculty or staff member, since it will provide access to additional on-campus resources that eduroam will not.
Connecting to eduroam
In most cases, you will just need to find the “eduroam” wireless network, and when it asks for a username and password provide your CUNY Login username (firstname.lastname@example.org) and password. If you need to configure settings, the following ones will work:
Security: WPA2 Enterprise
EAP method: PEAP
CA Certificate: don’t validate
Phase 2 Authentication: GTC
Attached is a screenshot from a Samsung phone showing the setup with the above options (in most cases you shouldn’t need to enter anything but the “CA Certificate” option)
This is what it looks like on an iPhone:
Windows and macOS are similar as well. Once you configure eduroam at Baruch it will work anyplace eduroam is available.

We look forward to being able to provide this service to the Baruch community as well as both CUNY and external visitors to Baruch.
