We have recently updated the certificate used for our WiFi networks on campus. The certificate authenticates the connection between your device and the WiFi and encrypts it.

 

This may mean that if you haven’t been on campus for a while that the first time you try to connect your device to the eduroam WiFi you may be asked to verify the certificate to connect again. If you do see this message then it is safe to verify the certificate.

 

You can also download and use the setup tool at cat.eduroam.org if you need help configuring your device. Just click on download the eduroam installer, select University of Birmingham from the list and choose the device type you wish to install it on.
