  • If you see a pop-up that your device cannot verify server identity, click Continue

3. When your Web browser opens and the splash screen appears, click Configure and Connect.

4. The Cloudpath wizard will launch automatically. If not, open a browser and go to a non-UB website such as amazon.com.

  • You will need to give permission to allow the file to run by selecting the box that you accept the terms, then clicking start
  • If it does not launch, manually download the file using the load Cloudpath manually link.

5.  Follow the on-screen directions. When prompted, enter your UBITName immediately followed by @buffalo.edu and your UBIT password.

  • If you have an Android device and do not have the Cloudpath App installed, you will be asked to download it from Google Play. Click Setup WiFi after you install it.

6.  If your phone does ask for a certificate/domain, type in clearpass1.cit.buffalo.edu

7.  When the connection is successful you will see a successfully connected message.

Whenever you are on campus with your device, it will automatically connect to eduroam Wi-Fi.
