eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop.

Wireless access is available to members of the James Hutton Institute throughout our Aberdeen and Dundee sites, as well as to visitors.

If you use eduroam, you can connect automatically without requesting a wireless login. For visitors who are not from an organisation that provides eduroam access, a wireless login can be requested from reception at our Aberdeen or Dundee sites so that you can connect to our HUTTON-GUESTS service.
