U of T visitors who do not belong to an eduroam institution

If you are visiting a U of T campus but do not belong to an institution that participates in the eduroam network infrastructure, any U of T faculty or staff member can grant you access to the eduroam Visitor Access (eVA) guest Wi-Fi by visiting from a computer connected to the U of T network, UTORvpn. On the eVA website they will find a phone number and a unique passcode that is updated daily. You may also see the passcode on departmental electronic signage.

To connect, text (SMS) the daily passcode to the specified phone number. You will then receive a return SMS message containing your temporary, unique username and password.

Select the Wi-Fi network called ”eduroam” on your device and login using the credentials you received via SMS message. Once complete, you will have Wi-Fi access on all three U of T campuses for the day.

You will need to request new login credentials each day that you require access to the eVA guest Wi-Fi network.
