These instructions are for configuring eduroam for macOS. You must be running Mountain Lion (10.8.5) or later to use eduroam. We recommend using Big Sur (11), Monterey (12) or Ventura (13) because older versions aren't receiving security updates any more.

Follow the appropriate instructions for macOS Big Sur and Monterey or macOS Ventura.

Before you begin, make sure you are in a location where the eduroam wireless network is available and have created a network access token for your device on the UIS token page.
