Eduroam (education roaming) allows users (researchers, teachers, students, staff) to securely access the Internet from any eduroam-enabled institution. You just need to configure your device once using the guide below.
One of the big advantages of eduroam is that you won’t need to go through captive portals to access the network.

If you have the old app already installed, we recommend you to uninstall it before installing the new one. To install the new one, download it first from Play Store by searching "geteduroam"
Once you installed the app, the first thing it will ask is the institution where you are at. In the search bar write down "Barcelona"
Select the item "Univesitat Autònoma de Barcelona"
Click on "Next" and the app will ask you for your NIU and password. Please fill in the form with the correct format as shown on the image.
Click "Connect to Network".
Then the app will show a message indicating that you are connected correctly.
Now the app will connect you to Eduroam automatically when you are in range.
On your Mac, iOS, Linux, or Windows device, click here and follow the instructions. If you've already set up eduroam and need to update settings you should first delete the current profile.
If you need to update the Eduroam profile at any time, e.g. due to a password or configuration change, you can delete the profile stored in your computer and then install a new profile. To delete the profile:
Click on the WiFi icon, then right-click on Eduroam and select "Forget".
