Wireless networks on campus, Wifi

There are two available wireless networks for employees at Umeå University. You can use either eduroam or UmU wlan. Employees can also create guest accounts to give guests access to wifi.


With eduroam, you can access wireless networks at colleges and universities around the world, no matter where you work or study. You log in with your eduroam identity from your home university and can then access wifi at all colleges, universities and places that are connected to eduroam. If you are travelling abroad, a map of where you can access eduroam is available on the official eduroam website.

To use eduroam you need to install an electronic certificate on your computer, telephone or tablet. The electronic certificate proves that your electronic identity document is correct and valid. Once you have installed the electronic certificate, your device will automatically connect to eduroam wherever you are.
