Wireless network

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

AU-Guest - Wireless network for guests

Guests at AU who need wireless network access can use the AU-Guest network.

1. Turn WIFI on (on your mobile, tablet or PC) under Settings.
2. Select the AU-Guest network.
3. Open a web browser, for example Safari, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome.

A login website will automatically appear as illustrated below.
If the login website does not appear, please write www.au.dk in the browser.

4. Log on to the internet by using one of the accounts below:

  •  Facebook
  •  Google Drive
  •  LinkedIn
  •  SMS (only Danish telephone numbers)
  •  Microsoft account (for example outlook.dk, hotmail.com)

If you click the AU logo, a new website will appear. From this website, you can download the installation software for eduroam.

AU-Guest access is for the internet only. AU-Guest does not provide access to internal services such as file and print servers.



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.

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.

AU-Gadget - Wireless net for devices

AU-Gadget is a wireless network for research equipment and devices which either do not have a screen or where login is not possible, unlike a computer or phone.

To log on to AU-Gadget, AU must approve the MAC address of your device or equipment, and you must have a Pre-shared key (PSK). Contact your local IT support desk and state why you need access to AU-Gadget as well as the MAC address of your equipment/device.
