WLAN with "eduroam" at the European University Viadrina

The “eduroam” network connection gives students and staff at the Viadrina University wireless access to the Internet. Furthermore in scientific institutions which are part of the eduroam network program it is possible to use the eduroam network not only in Europe, but also in many other countries in the World.

To use the eduroam network you only need a central Viadrina University account (Studentenkonto for students or Mitarbeiterkonto for employees).

Users get access to the eduroam network in seminar rooms, lecture halls and also in public areas, including AB, AM, CP, GD, HG, LH, PG and IBZ. Please note that eduroam network access in office rooms was not intended.

The eduroam network authentication is realized by 802.1x EAP/WPA2-Enterprise with EAP-TTLS or EAP-PEAP protocols. To make the connection work, you have to accept the root certificate. Please download the certificate manually from here.

The eduroam user login consists of username followed by
