To use a wired connection, you can connect your device directly to the wall socket. Authentication (login) is also required to activate the internet. You must log in with your student account ([email protected] + password). See this guide for the procedure for Windows 10.

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 for IT-services.

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.
