Step 4

Find and select eduroam in the list of available Wi-Fi networks.

Step 5

Log in to eduroam using your Mason email (NetID@gmu.edu) and your Patriot Pass Password.

  • Authentication: Protected EAP or PEAP
  • Inner Authentication: MSCHAPv2

Note: ITS recommends that Mason faculty, staff, and students verify their connection to eduroam on the Mason campus prior to traveling. However, MASON-SECURE should offer the best network experience for Mason faculty, staff, and students while on campus.
