If you've been logged in to eduroam before July 2019, there might be an old eduroam profile which needs to be deleted first.

  • Settings -> WLAN
  • Choose eduroam (press and hold the selection, until a menu pops up)
  • Remove network - the existing profile will be deleted.

Set up the eduroam profile

Download and Installation of the eduroam App

First, download and install the eduroam CAT app from the Google Playstore.

Configuration of the eduroam profile

The first time you open the app, you will be asked to share your location and grant access to the file system. The latter is required by the tool to access the configuration file. Location sharing helps to determine your university, but you can also search manually.

First search for your university or let it be found automatically. Perhaps the distance in kilometres is not quite correct, don't let this mislead you and select the university Mittweida. Android eduroam cat 05.png

The tool will then load a suitable configuration file. You will get an overview and can install it.

After installing the profile, you will be asked to log in. As username please use the username of your university login with "" as suffix.

For example : Enter your password and proceed.

You receive a message if the connection attempt was successful. In the future, you will automatically connect to the eduroam network when you are within range of the network.

If you wish, you can now uninstall the eduroam CAT tool. It was only needed to download and set up the correct profile. If the configuration was successful, it is not necessary to leave the app installed.
