How do I setup the Wireless network on my Apple (iOS) device?
A:
You can configure your iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) devices to access the UTPA wireless network manually, by following these instructions:
  • Select Settings from the home screen.
  • Select Wi-Fi from the Settings Screen.
  • Make sure Wi-Fi is turned on, and select eduroam from the list of available networks.
  • When prompted enter your UTPA username in the following format: username@utpa.edu (Note: This is not an email address, it is to specify the university you attend, e.g. STC students visiting UTPA will need to enter username@southtexascollege.edu).
  • Enter your UTPA password.
  • You may be prompted to accept a security certificate select the Accept button.
  • Once the Certificate is accepted the new network eduroam should appear in the network list with a checkmark appearing next to the network name. This confirms that the network was added and connected to successfully.

*Note: If your device has already connected to the UTPA-SETUP or one our older ST2010 or FS 2010 networks, your will need to do the following to prevent your device from connecting to it automatically instead of connecting to eduroam:
  • Select Settings from the home screen.
  • Select Wi-Fi from the Settings Screen.
  • Make sure Wi-Fi is turned on, and form the list of network check if UTPA-SETUP, ST2010 or FS2010 has a checkmark to its left. If yes, select the blue button that appears to its right.
  • At the top of the next screen select Forget this network.
  • Go back to the previous screen, and continue from step 3 on.

If the option to forget network does not appear, you will need to remove the ST2010 or FS2010 profile:
  • Select Settings from the home screen.
  • Select General
  • Scroll down to the end and select Profiles.
  • Press the Remove button.
