Connecting locally at a Confetti site
All students and members of staff can connect to eduroam when at any Confetti site. If you have any issues with your username or password, please contact your Tutor or Manager respectively.
How to connect
- Open your device’s Wi-Fi settings
- Choose the network titled eduroam
- At the prompt, enter your Confetti Username followed by @confetti.ac.uk. For example: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Enter your Confetti password (the one you use to access your emails/log on to on-campus computers)
- Accept certificates if prompted. For Android devices, you may need to select the drop down arrow next to ‘CA certificate’ and set it to ‘Do not validate’ (as in this image) before you are able to select Connect.
Visiting other eduroam sites
You may need to check with staff at the site that you will be visiting to find out what eduroam facilities are available there. Once you are at the remote site you will be prompted for your eduroam username and password. You should use your normal Confetti username (e.g. lauren.ipsum) followed by @confetti.ac.uk and then your normal login password.

You should follow any local instructions issued by the computing service at the institute that you are visiting regarding security, access restrictions and acceptable use policies. Note that you are also still bound by the Confetti Acceptable Use Policy. Where the policies and regulations differ, the most restrictive applies.
The Eduroam policy can be found on the JANET website.
Once authenticated you should usually have access to at least web browsing. This will allow you to access your Confetti email via Web Access. As a guest you will not normally have access to the visited institution’s facilities such as applications, printing, etc.
