USERNAME@ljmu.ac.uk 

NOTE: This is the username you use to log on to University PCs and NOT your email address.

E.g. ITSATEST@ljmu.ac.uk  (and not A.Test@ljmu.ac.uk or A.Test@2017.ljmu.ac.uk).

Eduroam is a secure network, so you’ll need to configure your device to use it – just follow the easy steps below.

For Apple iPhones – Go to Settings>Wi-Fi> select the Eduroam network, then accept the security certificates as they are offered.  Enter your username and password as described above.

For other phones and devices with 3G/4G, in your browser, visit http//wifi.ljmu.ac.uk where you will find a link to the eduroamCAT tool (labelled Configure Device), which should detect your device type and present you with the correct installer or take you to your app store to download a tool.   Just follow the on-screen instructions, including providing your username and password as described above.

For devices that do not have 3G/4G, e.g. Laptops, tablets etc., you should first connect to the SETUP-eduroam Wi-Fi network.  From there, you will be automatically redirected to http://wifi.ljmu.ac.uk and you can click the ‘Configure Device’ button to start the EduroamCAT tool and set up your Eduroam connection.  Enter your username and password as described above.
