The University of Gothenburg uses the encrypted network eduroam (EDUcation ROAMing), a global collaboration where universities give each other access to their wireless networks. In order to connect to eduroam you need a user account (from a membership organization, e.g. university). The computer must also be configured with a client and the correct settings. The details of configuration will vary depending on the equipment used by the user's "home university". Please consult your university's local IT support for questions and help with setup.
Guests who need temporary access to the wireless network can get a guest account. Please contact the reception for more information.
The unencrypted network Göteborgs universitet is only to be used in those cases where it is not possible to use eduroam.
There is a computer room with eight computers connected to Internet, for students to use. It is located on the second floor of the Main Building.
