If you set up eduroam before 16 December 2023 you will need to reconnect by following the instructions below. Your existing eduroam connection will stop working on 31 January 2024 if you do not. It's the same process for existing users who are refreshing their eduroam connection and new users who are setting up eduroam for the first time.

Before you start

  • We recommend that you use the geteduroam app to set up eduroam on your Android device. This app simplifies the process so that you can easily connect to eduroam.
  • You may need to use these manual instructions if you have tried using the geteduroam app but it did not work.
  • If you have a new Android phone, please set up your connection to eduroam using the instructions below instead of copying them over from your old device.
  • These instructions were written using a Google Pixel 6 running Android 13.
  • Make sure you are in a location where the eduroam wireless network is available.
  • You might find it easier to open these instructions on a different device than the one you are setting up. This allows you to refer to the instructions while you’re going through each step. As you follow the instructions below, you might find that the menu options on your device vary slightly. This is because of the variations between different versions of Android.


Step 1: Connect to UniOfCam-Guest wifi network temporarily

You need to be online while you set up eduroam. You should connect via UniOfCam-Guest or another local wifi network if your College doesn't offer UniOfCam-Guest. Or you could use your mobile data.

If you’ve set eduroam up manually previously you need to delete this.

  1. Go to ‘Settings’ then ‘Wi-Fi’.
  2. Select and hold ‘eduroam’ for a couple of seconds.
  3. If the option to ‘Forget network’ appears, select it and continue.


Step 2: Create a network access token

Create a network access token for your Android device. If you've connected to eduroam previously we still recommend that you create a new network access token.

You need to create a separate token for each of your devices and for each service. For example, if you want to connect to eduroam and the UIS VPN from both your laptop and phone, you need to create 4 tokens.

Use a meaningful username following the format It may be helpful to add the year if you've created network tokens previously. For example, You will need to use lower case.

Keep the window with the new network access token open as you will need this when you are asked to enter a username and password later. 

Create a new network access token on the Networks Access Token website


Step 3: Configure eduroam

Configure eduroam with these secure settings.

  1. Open your 'Settings'.
  2. Select 'Wi-Fi'.
  3. Select 'eduroam'.
  4. EAP method is "PEAP".
  5. Phase-2 Authentication is "MSCHAPV2".
  6. Select "Use System Certificates" from the ‘CA certificate’ pull-down list list.
  7. Select "Do not verify" from the Online Certificate Status pull-down list.
  8. In the 'domain' field use ""
  9. Your username (identity) is the username of the network access token you created in step 2 in the format, for example,
  10. The Anonymous identity is "".
  11. The password is the password for the network access token you created for this device.
  12. Select ‘Connect’.



Step 5: Forget the UniOfCam-Guest network

Finally, forget the UniOfCam-Guest network or a local wifi network, if used during the set-up steps. 

Your device should now automatically connect to eduroam wifi whenever an access point is in range.
