Instructions on setting up eduroam on your device

To safely set up eduroam on your device we recommend using the eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool (eduroam CAT) since a faulty manual installation can cause serious security problems.

Please note: You will need an internet connection to install eduroam, e.g. via LAN at work, at home, using mobile data or a mobile hotspot.
