    It is important to note the format of the Eduroam login username is different than your usual Tufts email address (e.g. john.smith@tufts.edu). The format requires the input of the TuftsUsername followed by @tufts.edu (e.g. jsmith01@tufts.edu). This is not the same format used as the Tufts user’s email address.
