Wi-Fi Calling while on International Travel
Wi-Fi calling isn't just for when your cell phone isn't getting a good signal in a building, it can also be used when you travel and know you will have easy access to Wi-Fi service. If travelling outside the U.S. and using Wi-Fi calling, international rates could still apply. Please check with your carrier for specifc details or email the YSE Helpdesk for more information.
Eduroam - Free Wi-Fi at Participating Institutions
Eduroam allows Yale students, faculty and staff visiting participating institutions to use their Yale credentials to access another institution’s wireless network for free. You can also access Eduroam any time you’re in range of the institution’s wireless network; e.g. at a nearby coffeeshop. To use, simply select the wireless network “eduroam” and use “firstname.lastname@example.org” for your username, replacing netid with your actual netid. To see a list of participating institutions, please see the Eduroam site. Eduroam access can even be set up before you depart, so once you arrive, your wireless devices will join the Eduroam network automatically. For assistance, please email the YSE Helpdesk.
Traveling with Loaned Equipment (Insurance REQUIRED)When faculty, staff or students are traveling outside the US with loaned IT equipment, we require them to purchase personal property insurance. This must be purchased on a personal credit card; it isn't an allowed expense on a Yale PCard. However, it will be reimbursed if you have a COA and if the travel is related to Yale business, research, or School-funded travel. YSE-IT needs proof of insurance before equipment is loaned for an international trip. Travelers are required to purchase the insurance 7-10 days before travel since the insurance takes 5 days to process. Yale will only reimburse for the minimum amount of insurance. You will log on with your net ID to set up an account. Coverage is not transferable from one person to another, but separate insurance need not be purchased for a second trip within the coverage period.
Go to https://haylor.com/college/yale-university ; choose the $100 deductible and a $2,000 limit, which is $65 dollars. This policy only runs from mid-August to mid-August of the next year, so the coverage will not be for a full year unless you purchase it in mid-August.
If you have any questions regarding the insurance please contact email@example.com or call 1-866-535-0456.
