UCSC Eduroam Wireless Service Moving to Gold

July 06, 2021

Exciting news! Throughout this year, you’ll use less and less of your CruzID Blue password to help streamline your login experience and make access to campus systems simpler.

First up - eduroam wireless

On August 11, 2021 the campus eduroam wireless service will move to using the UCSC Gold password authentication. That means, you’ll access eduroam with your current Gold password instead of your Blue. Easy!

Know your Gold!

The best way to prepare for this change is to know your UCSC Gold password. Knowing how to access your Gold either through a password manager or recalling from memory, will help ensure you can log in quickly and with minimal service disruption. Check your Gold password by visiting the CruzID Manager website https://cruzid.ucsc.edu/
