Can't connect Sonos Roam to the shared wifi

I live in a dorm with a shared wifi requiring me to put in both wifi login name and password.

Tried to connect Sonos Roam to the Wifi network (the app only asked to put in a password, no place to put in a wifi login name) and it did not work.


Please give an advice.

Purchase a travel router. Use that to log in to the shared WiFi and create your own network that you can have the Sonos join. It has the side benefit of isolating your Sonos from everyone else on that dorm network. 

Be sure to check with the school to make sure the rules allow such a thing, some places will expel you for doing this process, they look poorly on setting up a secondary network off their main network.
