At Papillon you'll find the student bar Louis in the basement and a mall across the street. With a walking distance on ten minutes, campus is not far away either.

A router from SSN has been placed in your apartment. To use a wired connection, you must connect the device you wish to use through this.

We recommend that you use network cables of the standard cat5e or newer.

Cable in wall - one port

Internet via cable

To use a wired connection, you can connect your device directly to the wall socket in your apartment. To connect several devices to the internet at the same time, a router must be used. The tenant must obtain this him or herself 

We recommend that you use network cables of the standard cat5e or newer.

If using a router, it MUST be in NAT mode, as we only have one public IP address per apartment. Most routers have this setting as default. Note that if you are switching between devices connected directly to the wall socket, it may take up to five minutes from when you disconnect one device before the next device has internet access.

No WiFi

SSN does not provide a wireless network in this building. If there is a need for WiFi, the tenant must set this up him or herself using a wireless router etc.

Priv-ssid: Private wireless network

Own WiFi

SSID and password for your personal wireless network can be found under the internet tab on My page.

WiFi: Eduroam

This is the same wireless network that you will find on campus (in addition to a number of other locations). To log in to eduroam, you must use your student account ([email protected] + password). You obtain your student account from the university at the start of studies. More information about student accounts can be found on the USN website.

Eduroam uses wpa-enterprise for authentication. This means you need both a username and password to log in. Many devices such as smart TV, Chromecast, Apple TV and gaming consoles do not support this and therefore cannot be used on Eduroam.
