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.

  1. From the Google Play Store, if you are using an Android 11 or higher download and install the geteduroam app, or if it's an older Android device 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. If you're using the geteduroam app, search for the James Hutton Institute on the "eduroam configuration" page, and login. In the "Username" field enter your Hutton email address and enter your Hutton password in the "Password" field. Select "Connect to the Network" and you should be able to connect to eduroam.
  3. If you're using the eduroam CAT app, continue to follow the steps below.
  4. From your device browse to this page and open this Hutton eduroam profile.
  5. 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 "Install Configuration File" which you should select. You should now be able to see the profile listed under the "PROFILES" tab as shown below. If the file won't open in eduroam CAT, you can instead open the menu (top right of the eduroamCAT app) and select to manually open the file.

  6. In the eduroam CAT app in the "INSTALL" tab, in the "Username" field enter your Hutton email address 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, and confirm your password is correct by entering it again.

If you have entered your username or password incorrectly, the status of your eduroam connection may remain as “Connecting” or change to “Disconnected”. You can modify your eduroam settings, by touching and holding the “eduroam” entry and selecting “Modify Network”.
