How Do I Configure Mac OS and IOS Devices for Use With Eduroam?

« Go Back


Functional GroupTechnical Resources: Network

Go through the following steps to manually configure your Mac OS or IOS device for use on the Eduroam wireless network. 

Mac OS and IOS devices require the installation of a certificate that auto configures the device to work on the ASU Eduroam wireless network.

Note that there are separate certificates for IOS devices and Mac OS computers. Be sure to download and install the correct certificate for your device. 
Certificate download links:


NOTE: Screenshots below are from Mac OS Sierra running on a MacBook Pro. Other versions of Mac OS X as well as IOS devices may look different.

1. Download the certificate to your device. You should be prompted to save the file to your device.

2. Navigate to the folder where the certificate was downloaded to. The downloaded file should look like the example below.

Note: For IOS devices only (IPAD and iPhone) you will need to use Safari as your default browser when installing the Eduroam certificate. If you have another browser set as the default browser the certificate installation will fail.

Switch your default browser to Safari, install the certificate, then you can switch your default browser back to your preferred browser. This does not need to be done on Mac OS laptops and desktops, just IOS devices (IPAD and iPhone).

On IPAD and iPhone devices you may be asked to enter your Your password when you run/install the mobileconfig certificate. Just leave the password field blank and click thru to finish the installation.

3. Click on the certificate file to run/install it.
