How do I connect to the eduroam wireless network with my Android Device?


The eduroam (education roaming) network is the secure, world-wide roaming wireless developed for the international research and education community. Once you're connected to eduroam, you can enjoy secure WiFi access at UC Davis, other educational institutions, and hotspots worldwide. No matter where you roam, your UC Davis security credentials are always checked back home at UC Davis. At eduroam hotspots around the world, no one but you knows your credentials so your connection is safe from hackers. For more information, please visit the eduroam service page in the IT Catalog.

The eduroam network uses 802.1x Security Certificates maintained by the Network Operations Center.  For more details, please visit NOC Public Certificates.
