Connect on Android

This is how to connect your Android device to the eduroam (the University Wi-Fi network).

Please note: This guide was created using Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Depending on your Android device, the interface may look slightly different, but the process and settings (such as username@leeds.ac.uk) are the same.

From the home screen, pull down from the top of your device to access the settings menu, and then tap on the Settings cog. Alternatively, you can access settings from your applications folder.

Android 6 1

Select Wi-Fi.

Android 6 2

Select eduroam from the list of networks.

Android 6 3

Enter the following settings (as shown in the screenshot below)

  • EAP method – PEAP
  • Phase 2 Authentication – MSCHAPV2
  • CA Certificate – Unspecified
  • User Certificate – Unspecified
  • Domain - If your device asks for a domain, please enter: Leeds.ac.uk
  • Identity – yourusername@leeds.ac.uk - You need @leeds.ac.uk at the end of your username or it will not connect. If you're an ADMIN user, you will need @admin.leeds.ac.uk after your username.
  • Anonymous Identity – Leave this blank
  • Password – Your password for your University account
  • Select connect

Updated Android

Your device may then start 'Obtaining IP address' and then should connect automatically from now on.

Android 6 6

If you still can't connect go to settings, then Wi-Fi and click on connect to 'WiFi - Setup Instructions'. This should take you to a link to install the automatic set up app from the Google Play store.

If you are still having problems, bring the device to the IT Service Desk who can help you in person.
