Android Instructions (Tested on Samsung Galaxy S2)

There are a large number of different smartphone and tablet devices which run different versions of the Android operating system, and as such it is not practical for us to provide detailed instructions for each device.

The generic instructions below should be sufficient for the range of devices, but please bear in mind that in places the interface and names of fields may differ slightly dependant upon how the manufacturer has implemented it.

  1. On the home screen press the menu button and choose settings.
  2. If WiFi is turned off, switch it and then choose the WiFi menu.
  3. Select the network named eduroam.
  4. Do not change any of the default settings (eg, keep the Security type set to PEAP).
  5. In the username field enter your University username and then append with 
    Important: you must use your username, not your email address. For example, a student called J B Priestley would have the university username jbpriest, his email would be (or possibly if he registered with the University before 16 June 2014), but to login to eduroam he would need to use
  6. If asked, leave the Anonymous Identity field blank.
  7. Enter your University password.
  8. Choose Connect.
  9. If asked, accept the security certificate.

Your device should now be connected to the internet via eduroam. In future to connect you will only need to carry out steps 1 - 3, as your device should retain your credentials and the certificate for future use.
