How do I connect my Android device to eduroam?

Logging your Android device into eduroam allows you to access our fast, encrypted wireless network for students. Follow these instructions to connect:

  1. Turn on Wi-Fi in Settings.
  2. Select eduroam from the list of available wireless networks. A window will appear, press ‘connect’.
  3. Check the EAP method is PEAP and adjust if not.
  4. Change the Phase 2 authentication drop down to 'MSCHAPV2'. If the option to select Phase 2 authentication does not appear, click 'Advanced' and select 'MSCHAPV'. Click 'Save'.
  5. CA Certificate - set to "Do not validate"
  6. If "Do not validate" is not available as an option under CA Certificate, select "Use system certificates"
  7. If asked for a domain, type ""
  8. In the identity box type in your username (e.g. c1234567) followed by
  9. In the 'Anonymous identity' leave blank. If you have a ChromeBook see these instructions: How do I connect my Chromebook to eduroam?
  10. Enter your password (the same one used to log in to MyBeckett).
  11. Press 'Connect' and it should connect to eduroam.

    If the phone doesn’t connect after this process, it is a good idea to ‘forget’ any Leeds Beckett networks and then try again. To do this:
  12. Swipe down the screen and click on settings (generally represented by a cog).
  13. Click on Wi-Fi.
  14. Click on eduroam.
  15. On the next screen, click on ‘forget’. Also do this with Guest Wi-Fi if you have connected to that network before.
  16. If it still won't connect, restart the device and see if it then auto connects.

Once your device has connected to eduroam you should only need to reconnect every 6 months when your university password expires.
