How to connect to university wifi.

I bought a nest mini and I need it to be connected to the campus wifi. The campus uses eduroam wifi. We have to use a username and password to join the wifi. But when I try to connect the nest mini, it only allows to enter the password and not the username. Then it doesn’t get connected. 

How do I connect the nest mini to the wifi that requires us to put username and password?

Hi nst,

Google Home/Nest devices are designed to be used on secure private home WiFi networks and can not connect with captive portal type networks unless your network administrator adds the MAC address. Some users have used travel routers or shared connections from other devices but it's best to speak with the network administrator before adding devices to their network.

Also be aware that if the device is connected with a large network all other users on the network might be able to see and control the device.
