The eduroam network is Florida Tech's wifi network for current Florida Tech students, faculty, and staff.  Only devices that support the "WPA 2 Enterprise" security protocol will be able to connect, and make use of it.  Most modern phones and computers will support this.  Please follow the instructions HERE in order to connect.

 

If you have a device, that does not support WPA2 Enterprise, like IoT devices, TVs or game consoles, please follow the instructions HERE to connect to the FLTech-Dorms WiFi.

 

 If you have a wired device on the residential network, you will first need to register it here from within the FIT network.  You will need your device's MAC address.  You can search the web for "How to get <device name> mac address", and find specific instructions for your personal device.
