If you are using a UOW owned and managed Windows or Mac PC there is no set up for eduroam, you can join it just like any other wireless network. You just need to ensure that you enter your username in the format email@example.com (this is not the same as your email address).
If you are using a personal device then you will need to preconfigure it in order to connect to eduroam. Common configuration packages for personal devices running Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems can be downloaded from here or by scanning or clicking on the QR code below.
For any other devices please contact Information Services and we will be happy to advise on how best to configure them for eduroam.
If you are going to use eduroam at another institution, it is a good idea to have Information Services set-up your device before you go. This will allow us to verify that your settings are correct and that you will not encounter any problems on arrival when trying to connect.
Remember that you must always use your domain login name with the @wales.ac.uk suffix when using eduroam i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org.
