Eduroam

Eduroam (education roaming) is a secure, international wireless (Wi-Fi) service available to all staff and students at Middlesbrough College.  

All eduroam usernames start with your college username and finish with '@mbro.ac.uk'.

When setting up eduroam, you must enter the username in the format 'itaccount@mbro.ac.uk', where 'itaccount' is your IT account name.

For example, if your college username is 'M1234567', your eduroam username is 'M1234567@mbro.ac.uk'.

This applies to all students and staff, M/MC/TR numbers.

For the purposes of eduroam, a student’s email account of '@middlesbro.ac.uk' will not work, '@mbro.ac.uk' is needed.

How to connect to eduroam on a phone, laptop or tablet

1.       Access your Wi-Fi settings on your device.

2.       Scan for available networks. Once “eduroam” has been discovered, connect to this.

3.       This should pop up with a box asking for a username and password. Your username is as mentioned above (M*******@mbro.ac.uk) and the password is the one you use to log into a college PC.

4.       Some devices require an extra “certificate” field. If this is the case, select “Do Not Validate”.
