With eduroam, Minnesota State students and employees can use their StarID credentials to access Wi-Fi when visiting participating institutions. Visitors from other eduroam-participating colleges and universities can access Wi-Fi at participating Minnesota State colleges and universities using the usernames and passwords from their home institutions.

Before traveling to another eduroam-participating institution, we recommend signing onto eduroam at your home campus with each device you will be using, to be sure everything works. Connecting involves installing 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.

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

  • Security: 802.1x EAP
  • EAP Method: TTLS
  • Phase-2 Authentication: PAP or GTC
  • Proxy Settings: none
  • IP Settings: DHCP
  • CA Certificate: Use system certificates
  • Domain: minnstate.edu
  • Anonymous Identity: not needed, leave blank

Using the eduroam configuration assistant

Some devices, especially those running Windows older than Windows 10, may require the use of eduroam’s configuration assistant to make eduroam work. Note that this requires administrative privileges on your device.

    Username: StarID@minnstate.edu or StarID@go.minnstate.edu (for example, ab1234cd@minnstate.edu)
    Password: your StarID password
  6. Go to your device’s Wi-Fi setting and select eduroam
  7. Your device is connected to eduroam and will automatically connect at eduroam-participating institutions.
