Setting up eduroam: iOS

How to set up eduroam on a mobile device running iOS


If you're updating or replacing your eduroam setup, remember to remove the old profile first.

Open the Settings app, select General, scroll down and select Profile or Profiles, then select your current eduroam profile and tap Remove Profile. iOS may ask you for your device password to confirm the removal. If you don't see 'Profile' in your general settings, you don't have any profiles installed and can skip this step.

After you have removed the profile, you'll need to use an alternative network connection – for example, a 3G/4G mobile connection or the University's Wi-Fi by selecting UniOfCam and signing in with your password for Raven. You can then follow the rest of the instructions below. 

If you don't see an old profile, you can skip this step and follow the rest of the instructions below.

You'll see this screen confirming that the profile has been installed. Press 'Done'.

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
