Wireless networks at the university
The university has two wireless networks: the international eduroam and the university's own HUPnet. We recommend using eduroam as its data traffic is encrypted. It is also usually a better option for visitors as it does not require a separate visitor ID; account holders of universities in the eduroam cooperation network can use the accounts of their home organisation when logging in to eduroam.
Both eduroam and HUPnet have good coverage at the university. You can find eduroam, HUPnet, or both in almost every university property. The signal may vary in different parts of buildings. The IT Center is in charge of the wireless networks and the Center is constantly improving the signals of the networks, meaning that the number of dead zones will be increasingly reduced.
