Wifi Access

All indoor areas of the IADT campus have wireless coverage. Should you have any difficult accessing the network see contact information below. Please note that all IADT wireless networks are subject to the usage policies listed below.

Wifi Networks

IADT has three wireless networks:


eduroam Wireless Network

eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. eduroam is IADT’s preferred wireless network as this gives the users the greatest level of security. eduroam is a certificate based wireless network so once an IADT staff or student connects to this network they will reconnect without the requirement to authenticate. Re-authentication is only required when an IADT network user changes their network password. By connecting to eduroam in IADT it also allows IADT staff and students to use wireless networks in almost all third level Institutions in Ireland as well as most in the UK and Europe. Guests from other Institutions who have eduroam in their Institution can also use this network.

To find out more view the promotional video.

If you plan to use eduroam in another institution it’s recommended that you test that eduroam works for you in IADT before you leave. If you can’t get it working here, you’re likely to have problems elsewhere as well.

As long as you are an IADT staff or Student you can set-up eduroam and almost any mobile device that has a working wifi card installed in it.

Visit to begin setting up your device on the eduroam wireless network.

  • Click the “eduroam user: download your eduroam installer” button;
  • Pick Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology;
  • Choose you Operating System/Device (usually automatic);
  • Allow the programme to run;
  • Your username is your normal IADT login eg N0001234567 or bloggsj followed by so your login should look like this: or and your password is the same as your network or IADT email password.

Note: Remember when you change your IADT network password you will have to re-enter it into your mobile device to retain access to the eduroam wifi network

Connect your mobile device to the wireless network with SSID IADT WIRELESS.

After connecting to the IADT Wirless Network you need to open an internet browser, after a couple of seconds you will be repointed to a log-in page where you will need to authenticate using your IADT username and password.

Once you have authenticated you can then access the Internet and all IADT’s online resources

NOTE: IADT’s wireless network, like wifi networks in public places, is an “un-secure network”, this means that users of the network must take their own precautions in protecting their device and data from any possible security risks

Any Staff and Student can print from their laptop, mobile device or home, as long as the device is connected to the internet.

All a IADT staff or student member needs to do is email the required document for printing to as an attachment.
