Mobile Devices

For iOS devices (iPhone, iPad), follow the instructions below:

  • If you just want to connect to the wireless network, go into Settings, then Wi-Fi and select the network named eduroam. It will prompt you for credentials – Enter your full CofC e-mail address (e.g. and your MyCharleston password (not your e-mail password, which may be different), then click on join to join the network. It will prompt you for the security certificate. Accept the certificate and your device will be on the network.

For Android based devices, go into the Wi-Fi settings and look for a broadcasting network named eduroam. When you are prompted for settings, enter them as shown below:

  • Security – 802.1X Enterprise
  • EAP Method: PEAP
  • Phase 2 Authentication: MSCHAPV2
  • CA Certificate: Use system certificates
  • Domain:
  • Identity: Your full MyCharleston e-mail address
  • Anonymous identity: Leave blank
  • Wireless Password: Your MyCharleston Password

Important Note: Not all versions of the Android operating system support the encryption type that we use, so if you do not have the option to select 802.1X, then your device may not be able to connect to eduroam.
