Connecting to eduroam

Minnesota State employees and students can use their StarID credentials to access wi-fi through eduroam when visiting participating institutions.

Before traveling to another eduroam-participating institution, we recommend connecting to eduroam at your home campus with each device you will be using to ensure everything works. Connecting involves installation of a security certificate.

Connecting to eduroam

  1. On your device, select the eduroam from the list of available Wi-Fi networks.
  2. You will be prompted to sign onto the network. Enter the following for credentials:
    Username: StarID@minnstate.edu or StarID@go.minnstate.edu (for example, ab1234cd@minnstate.edu)
    Password: your StarID password.
  3. You may be prompted to accept a security certificate. If this happens, verify that the certificate is from radius.mnstate.us. If so, click OK to accept.

Note: Linux devices may not prompt for credentials when you first join eduroam. If that's the case, set up a "hidden" network with the settings below.

If your device asks for more information, use the following settings:

  • Security: 802.1x EAP / WPA2 Enterprise
  • EAP Method: TTLS (Tunneled TLS)
  • Phase-2 (Inner) Authentication: PAP or GTC
  • Proxy Settings: none
  • IP Settings: DHCP
  • CA Certificate: Use system certificates (no CA certificate is required)
  • Domain: minnstate.edu
  • Anonymous Identity: anonymous@minnstate.edu 

Sometimes a device may prompt for authentication several times, even though the password is correct. If this happens, keep trying. Once the device has connected, it usually connects automatically from then on. If the device tells you that the password is invalid, though, it probably is. Re-enter and try again.
