Eduroam is available on most popular devices, however it should be noted that not all devices are compatible with the service and some older devices may not work with the App intended for your operating system.
Tools are available to assist you with installing and configuring eduroam on your device, and the tool you use will depend on your device type, model, and OS, etc.
Generally, we recommend using the “geteduroam” app for newer devices. However, if this does not work or is unavailable for your device, we recommend the “eduroamCAT” app.
Both “geteduroam” and “eduroamCAT” are available from the App Store or Google Play, respectively. However, they may not be available for your specific device/model/OS. If that is the case, please open a web browser and visit cat.eduroam.org for alternative installation options. Instructions are provided within the apps.
When searching for your institution, please look for “University of Cumbria”.
If asked to choose a profile, select “UoC_Students_and_Staff”.
