Eduroam CAT (Configuration Assistant Tool)

If your device is supported, the eduroam CAT tool is designed to automatically configure your device for eduroam use.

Devices and operating systems that are supported are as follows:

 

  1. To use this service browse to https://cat.eduroam.org.

  2. Click the link at the bottom of the page titled eduroam user: download your eduroam installer.

  3. In the Home institution search box type "Natural Environment Research Council".

    Note: Once you start to type in the phrase the search engine will automatically narrow down the results, so, once you can see "Natural Environment Research Council", click on it to select it.

  5. Once the setup file has downloaded you will need to run it and follow the on screen instructions.

  6. You may be prompted for your device's administrative password (pin number or password). This will likely be at the beginning of the process.

  7. During the installation you will be required to enter your NERC Office 365 logon username and password.

    i.e. username@centre.ac.uk   (e.g. barrx3@nerc.ac.uk)

    Note: For most users, this is your email address. However, if your email address contains your real name (e.g. barry.smith@nerc.ac.uk) it will not work, it has to be your username before the '@'. Please contact your local IT team if you have any questions.
