Eduroam and AirBears2 are the WiFi networks for the UC Berkeley campus community. In order to connect to eduroam or airbears2 individuals must create a token, or key, that will be used in place of their normal CalNet passphrase.
What types of accounts are supported on campus WiFi?
- Faculty, Staff, Students, and Associates (anyone with a CalNET ID)
- Special Purpose Accounts (for use with kiosks and similar devices)
- Sponsored Guest Accounts (for visitors)
Note that visitors from other academic and research institutes who already have an eduroam account do not need to create a new one when visiting UC Berkeley. Eduroam accounts are shared world-wide.
