Then tap 'Next'. 

6

When asked for a password, manually type the password for the network access token you created for this device on the UIS Token pageTip: Don't copy and paste the password because this can lead to spaces being added.

To make sure your device doesn't connect to UniOfCam instead of eduroam, go to Settings and then Wi-Fi (it might be under Settings, General, Network and Wi-Fi on older versions of iOS) and click the 'i' symbol to the right of UniOfCam. Then make sure that 'Auto-Join' is off, like below:

8. Remove UniofCam AutoJoin

Your device should now automatically connect to the University's Wireless Service via eduroam whenever an access point is in range. If it doesn't work, double check the above steps – particularly making sure your entered the user name and password correctly.
