If I may add, as an University admin having to deal with foreign
(meaning not from my University) users:

For the love of $deity, enforce the existence of a realm in the Eduroam
SSID for every user, even your local ones.

I really really really hate all the users from other universities who
try to log in to our Eduroam SSID using only "username" instead of
"username at uni.ver.sity", causing unneccesary chatter and rejects from
the local RADIUS servers.

This additionally serves the purpose of ensuring that your *own* users
have a realm configured, so their configuration continues to work in
foreign Eduroam networks.

Please, don't allow just "username" for your local users to work in your
Eduroam, you will create a heap of problems for you and your users down
the line.

Believe me, I was down that line and it was a real mess to clean up.
