Free access to the Internet


eduroam stands for "EDUcation ROAMing". The eduroam initiative is a worldwide association of universities and colleges to allow employees and students free access to the Internet.

With eduroam, it is possible for FH JOANNEUM staff and students to log on to the partner organizations' WLAN with their FH credentials and without changing any settings. At the same time, members of other participating organizations can use the FH JOANNEUM WLAN.

Basically, we advise you to set up and test eduroam at your home organization (i.e. the organization you belong to and have a user account with) first. The advantage of this is that if you have any problems, you still have local internet access and you can seek help from your institution. In most cases, eduroam will work at another location if there were no problems at the home organization.
