eduroam - Updating Your eduroam Password on Your Android Device

This article provides instructions on updating your Wi-Fi password on your Android device after changing your password.

The network 'eduroam' is the preferred method for connecting to WiFi on campus. It stays connected in between buildings and only requires extra sign ins when you change your password every 6 months. When your password changes, you must update the password saved on your device. Follow the guide below:

Please note some menus may look different on your device compared to the screenshots, however the process is the same.

  1. First, go to the settings app. Its icon typically looks like a gear. Once in the settings app, locate the 'connections' or 'WiFi' menu and tap it. If your device is like the one in the screenshots below, please tap 'WiFi' in the connections menu. Be sure not to tap the switch to the right of 'WiFi' as this will turn wifi off

    2. CA certificate is set to Don't Validate
    3. Phase 2 authentication is set to MSCHAPV2
