Connect to eduroam from an Android device

To help staff and students of the James Hutton Institute connect to the eduroam wireless network, this page provides instructions for connecting from a Google Android device. These instructions should be followed whilst onsite at the Aberdeen or Dundee sites of the James Hutton Institute.

Visitors to the James Hutton Institute who wish to use eduroam should have already setup their device based on their home site’s instructions before visiting.

Android Devices running Android 4.4 or later

If you're running Android 4.4 (KitKat) or later you can have your device automatically configured with all the correct settings by following these instructions.

  1. From the Google Play Store download and install the eduroam CAT app on your Android device. If you have already previously tried to set up your eduroam connection on this device the app will tell you what settings you currently are missing. To setup eduroam you will need to install the Hutton profile in the next step.
  2. From your device browse to this page and select one of the following two profiles depending on your Android device:

    Hutton eduroam profile for Android 4.4 (KitKat)

    Hutton eduroam profile for Android 5.0 (Lollipop)

    Hutton eduroam profile for Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)

    Hutton eduroam profile for Android 7.0 (Nougat)

    Hutton eduroam profile for Android 8.0 (Oreo)

  3. The profile should download to your device. Open the profile and it should either install it automatically in the eduroam CAT app, or you may be prompted to "Instal Configuration File" which you should select. You should now be able to see the profile listed under the "PROFILES" tab as shown below.

  4. In the eduroam CAT app in the "INSTALL" tab, in the "Username" field enter your Hutton username with @hutton.ac.uk on the end. For example if your hutton username is normally aa40123 you would enter aa40123@hutton.ac.uk and enter your Hutton password in the "Password" field. Select the "Install" button at the bottom.

You should now see confirmation that your device is configured for eduroam access. If you still can't connect, make sure that your username is entered as described above with @hutton.ac.uk on the end, and confirm your password is correct by entering it again.
