Note: Your wireless device must support 802.1x authentication to access the eduroam network.
If you have a device that does not support 802.1x, see Device Registration for Network Access.
If you’re looking for more eduroam resources including information about the federation, locating services, and automatic configuration tools, visit eduroam.org.
On your wireless device, find and connect to the eduroam Wi-Fi network.
- If your device can automatically detect and configure Wi-Fi settings (most Apple devices), you will be prompted to log in. Log in using your full Mason email address (NetID@gmu.edu) and your Patriot Pass Password.
- If your device requires you to manually configure Wi-Fi settings, it will present you with a screen (or a series of screens) that require a response or configuration. Please enter the appropriate security and authentication preferences. There is some variance across devices but these are the general parameters:
- Some devices ask for a Security Type. Use WPA2 Enterprise or IEEE 802.1x
- All devices require an Authentication Type. Use Protected EAP or PEAP
- All devices require a Secondary or Inner Authentication Type. Use MSCHAPv2
- All devices require a Username. Use your full Mason email address (NetID@gmu.edu)
- Some devices ask for an Anonymous Username. Leave this blank
- All devices require a Password. Use your Patriot Pass Password.
For more details including additional configuration hints, see How to Configure 802.1x Authentication.
Congratulations! You are configured to use the eduroam network at Mason and at participating institutions across the world. Don’t forget to come back and update these settings when you change your password.
