Visitors from eduroam participating institutions

Before visiting UWE Bristol, set up your device to connect to eduroam at your own institution.

If your university uses the eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool (CAT), eduroam will automatically connect you whenever you're in range of an eduroam hotspot, which includes all UWE Bristol campuses. There are thousands of hotspots across more than 100 countries.

If you connect to eduroam at your home institution using set proxy settings (for example, you haven't installed the eduroam CAT), please follow the steps below:

  1. Remove set proxy settings for your home institution before trying to connect at UWE Bristol.
  2. When at UWE Bristol, connect your device to eduroam.
  3. Set 'Security Type' to WPA2-Enterprise.
  4. Login using:
    • Username: your usual username followed by the '@' symbol and your home institutions domain (for example, an2-other@bath.ac.uk)
    • Password: your password
  5. When you return to your institution, remember to reset your network proxy settings to connect back to your institution's eduroam (if necessary).

For further assistance please contact your institution's support service.
