eduroam at CDU


The eduroam service allows university staff and students to access the internet via wireless networks at CDU and other participating universities without the need to obtain or create a new account at the host institution. By using a modified version of your CDU username and password (see table below for details) and your laptop, you will be able to access the internet.

Note: If your computer password changes, you will also need to change your wifi password.
