These steps will demonstrate how to connect to Colgate's WiFi network on an Android device.


eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. It is the primary Wi-Fi network for the Colgate community. Devices registered on Colgate’s eduroam network will automatically connect to the eduroam network at other institutions worldwide. For more information, visit:


  • eduroam credentials - in Colgate’s case, an active network account (the same account used to access the Portal)
  • An Android device such as a smartphone or tablet


Below is an illustrated procedure you may choose to follow, but because the interface for Android Devices varies, the images below may not have the same look and feel as your Android phone or tablet.

You may want to use the information above to help you connect rather than follow the screen captures below.

Additional Notes

If your device requires any of the following details, enter the following:

  • Identity: enter your full Colgate email address
  • Password: enter the password you use to log onto the portal
  • EAP Method: PEAP
  • Phase2 Authentication: MSCHAPV2 or None
  • Online Certificate Status:  Don't Validate
