Utrecht University (Wifi) on Android

This manual describes how you can connect an Android device to Utrecht University, the Wi-Fi network of the university

Android is available in multiple versions. This manual has been made with an Samsung A40 with Android 11 as operating system, but this manual can be used for all versions of Android. The screenshots may differ from the OS on your device.

  • Step 1

    Make sure that you’re in reach of the Utrecht University network. This should be the case in most buildings of the university.

  • Step 2

    Wipe down on your start screen to open the notification drawer.

  • Step 3

    Now keep the Wi-Fi symbol pressed for some time to open the Wi-Fi settings.

  • Step 4

    Turn (if it wasn’t already) the Wi-Fi adapter of you device on. Now choose “Utrecht University” out of the list of available networks. It can take some time before your phone found the network.

  • Step 5

    EAP-method: PEAP

    Phase 2-verification: MSCHAPV2. In Android 9 or higher this setting is located in the Advanced menu.
