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 by swiping down from the top of the screen and clicking on the Wi-Fi button so it lights up.
  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'.
  5. CA Certificate - set to "Do not validate"
  6. In the identity box type in your username (e.g. c1234567) followed by
  7. In the 'Anonymous identity' leave blank.
    If you have a ChromeBook click here
  8. Enter your password (the same one used to log in to MyBeckett).
  9. 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:

  1. Swipe down the screen and click on settings (generally represented by a cog).
  2. Click on Wi-Fi.
  3. Click on Eduroam.
  4. On the next screen, click on ‘forget’. Also do this with Guest Wi-Fi if you have connected to that network before.
  5. 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.
