Eduroam – Connect Chromebook

If you are using your Chromebook for the first time you won’t be able to connect to eduroam from the login screen, as Chrome needs to go online to verify your password. You’ll need to temporarily use a different connection (UoB Guest WiFi) for this purpose.

Please note you will not be able to complete these instructions below while using “UoB Guest”.

When on campus connect to the Bristol-Wifi-Setup network. Once connected please download the Zip folder containing ONC file.

If you have a wired connection to the University network please download Zip folder containing ONC file (wired) for Chromebook devices

  1. Open the Chrome browser and enter chrome://net-internals/#chromeos into the address bar.
  2. Under Import ONC file click the Choose File button.
  3. Select the Eduroam ONC file and click Open
  4. From the device WiFi settings select Eduroam
  5. Enter your UoB username (e.g. ab12345@bristol.ac.uk) and password to establish a UoB Eduroam connection.
