Setting up eduroam on iphone

It is possible to manually configure your Apple device for using the eduroam wireless network, but it is easier to install a ‘profile’ which installs and configures all the necessary security and other settings.

You need to have access to the file containing the ‘Bournemouth University eduroam profile’ from your device. This file can be accessed from your web browser by clicking the link below:

The profile will now be stored on your device. You should now be able to connect to the ‘eduroam’ wireless network within Bournemouth University and at other participating establishments.

Connecting to eduroam

Now you have the eduroam profile installed on your device, you can connect to the eduroam network at any participating academic institution. You can also use this network internally within Bournemouth University, but you will not be able to access all the services which are available via the BU-Student or BU-Staff networks.
