eduroam is the primary WiFi network for the UC Berkeley campus community. In order to connect to eduroam individuals must create a token, or key, that will be used in place of their normal CalNet passphrase.

Please note that airbears2 will be decommissioned, all new connections should be to eduroam.

What types of accounts are supported on campus WiFi?

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.
