Eduroam

Eduroam for UGent staff and students

For Apple (iPhone, iPad and Mac) you download (via Safari!) the following config file.


  1. Change your password (once)

    If your account was granted before May 1, 2013, you should first change your password (using the form at https://password.ugent.be/ sleutel-icoon).

  2. How do I connect?

    Select the 'eduroam' network and enter your login name@ugent.be and your UGent password when asked
    (DO NOT FORGET "@ugent.be").

  3. Certificate message

    The first time you connect, the question whether you trust the certificate that is presented by the network appears. This is a normal security question. The certificate is AddTrust External CA Root. The "radius server" is ugrad.UGent.be.

    Accept the certificate.

Once near an eduroam access point, select the access point from the possible connections. You should get an automatic information box which will give a login prompt when selected. After this your login details must be entered to achieve full network usage. Enter your login name@ugent.be and your UGent password.
(DO NOT FORGET "@ugent.be").
