Tap to turn off the 'Private Address' feature


Select 'Rejoin' when asked



That is it.

Your device will auto-connect to eduroam each time you return to campus.

If you change your password, you will be prompted to enter it next time you connect.

You may see a privacy warning message in the WiFi setting page. 
That warning is from turning off the Private Addressing feature - which must be done to connect to eduroam. 
That privacy feature is intended to be used on unsecured public WiFi networks - such as Tim Horton's or McDonald's, where your devices connection information would be used/sold for marketing and tracking purposes.
