Practical information

Wireless network

Aarhus University has  wireless networks which are accessible at the entire university.  

Eduroam 

Eduroam is the primary wireless network for students and employees. Once you have eduroam set up on your computer or mobile phone, it automatically connects to the wireless network when your device is in range. At AU, you can use eduroam to connect to internal file and print servers, and you can also use the online resources the university subscribes to, such as ordbogen.com.

Eduroam is a global collaboration which also gives AU students and employees free access to the wireless network at other teaching and research institutions all over the world.

How to set up eduroam

Note: It is important to run the installation program, because this provides more secure protection of your username and password due to the installation of a certificate.
