Get online with Eduroam

  1. Register for a REMOTE ACCESS account at:
    https://register.it.ox.ac.uk/self/remote_access
  2. Download the Eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool (CAT):
    1. https://cat.eduroam.org/?idp=191&profile=4203 or
    2. https://www.queens.ox.ac.uk/eduroam-cat
  3. You will then be presented with various installers – choose your operating system
  4. Once the installer has downloaded run the installer program
  5. When prompted for username and password make sure you append @OX.AC.UK to your username (example – unit1234@OX.AC.UK)
    • It is very important that your username is entered in this format for Eduroam – unit1234@OX.AC.UK  (lowercase@UPPERCASE).
    • The character case does not matter for other University web services like your email, but it does for Eduroam. 
  6. Once installed (and you are within range of an Eduroam Wireless network!) you may be prompted to enter your user credentials again – as a final security check.
  7. Your computer / device will now remember your password, so you don’t have to keep typing it in.

Manually setting up Eduroam

Sometimes the Eduroam CAT doesn’t work for some smartphone devices. So here are some instructions for setting up Eduroam manually.


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
