WLAN eduroam configuration
WiFi eduroam configuration
Use eduroam® CAT (Configuration Assistant Tool) for setting up eduroam. The installer will automatically configure access to eduroam on your device. You only need an active internet connection, e.g. via mobile network or @BayernWLAN and a user account of the university.
What do you have to do?
- start a browser on your device, e.g. Firefox, iOS / macOS Safari, there is an app necessary for Android "Specially for ..."
- visit the site https://cat.eduroam.org
- download the eduroam® installer from this site
- follow the instructions for configuration
Login: your eduroam user name is always <username>@uni-wuerzburg.de
Therefore, please add @uni-wuerzburg.de to your username (the one you login to WueStudy for example). Attention: it is not your e-mail address.
- you must first download and install the eduroam CAT app from Google Play Store.
- either open the app and install the profiles or visit https://cat.eduroam.org
- if you need to search for the organization, look for Würzburg with ü, not Wuerzburg with ue
Problem with the connection to eduroam?
In general, we recommend deleting all eduroam profiels and reinstalling eduroam by using the CAT tool in case of problems.
Make sure you use the correct username (s.......@uni-wuerzburg.de).
The password is the same one you use to lg in to the mail program or WueStudy.
It often helps to switch WiFi off and on angain. Then reconnect to eduroam.
With iPhones and iPads, the eduroam connection is sometimes only established after several connection attempts.

Set up eduroam with these parameters:

The verification of the server you authenticate to should be enabled.

We strongly recommend setting up eduroam exclusively via eduroam® CAT. This way, all parameters are entered correctly and thus ensure a secure connection. You avoid possible securit gaps which could lead to password theft. Start the configuration via the eduroam page of the Rechenzentrum, from where you will be redirected to the eduroam CAT Homepage .
Profiles for almost all current devices and operating systems are offered via eduroam® CAT. If there is no profile for your system, it is probably outdated and may no longer be connected to the uninetwork.
