Lund University’s wireless network is called Eduroam and is available at the University Library for students and employees. Eduroam is a secure wireless network used by many higher education institutions in Europe. Before you can use Eduroam for the first time, you will need to configure the correct settings on your computer/telephone/tablet.
If you are neither a student nor staff at university level, you can use a temporary login. Choose the wireless network called LU Guest. You register through a text message or mail and receive a code lasting a maximum of 12 hours.
When using our network, you need to follow certain rules.
