Gaming:  Due to Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo’s inability to provide WPA2 encryption on their gaming systems the following gaming systems will not communicate with Eduroam in our student residence buildings. The WPA2 encryption level is required in our university network to ensure the security and safety of our students and community.
