Useful tips

  • REMOVE existing Profile

    Sometimes the Eduroam CAT doesn’t always take and you cannot connect to Eduroam properly. You will then need to remove the Eduroam network and start again.

    • iOS devices – Settings > General > Profile > eduroam > Remove Profile
    • Android devices (depending on age of operating system)
      • Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi > three vertical dots > Advanced > Manage Networks > Then forget the eduroam network
        • or Settings > search for Manage Networks > Then forget the eduroam network
      • Here are some Android screenshots which may help
  • REMOTE ACCESS credentials

You need to know your REMOTE ACCESS password – this is NOT your SSO password! If you have not created a REMOTE ACCESS password yet, then you can do so from this website: https://register.it.ox.ac.uk/self/remote_access
