An eduroam profile is available for installation in iOS devices. When the profile has been installed, eduroam is always available automatically. The profile is an XML file that can contain different settings. Multiple profiles can be set up on iOS.

Installing eduroam

  1. Launch Safari on your iPad or iPhone (you can use a mobile data connection or HUPnet at the university): To sign in to HUPnet, tap Settings -> Wi-Fi to select the network and then enter the university user account and password in the login page.
  2. Go to cat.eduroam.org. Tap eduroam user: download your eduroam installer.
  3. In the opening list, select University of Helsinki as the home organisation. Visitors from other universities can select their own home organisation if it is listed as a part of the eduroam network.
  4. Tap Apple iOS mobile devices.
  5. The profile installation window opens. Tap Install, then tap Install again in the root certificate confirmation window. Enter the device passcode if enabled.
