Wireless connections at the university

As part of the reform of wireless roaming networks, only HUPnet accounts can be used to log in to HUPnet from 1.2.2019 onwards.

  • University staff and students can use the secure Eduroam network.
  • You can download eduroam settings when you are in HUPnet. You can then download eduroam settings without signing in to HUPnet. Get the eduroam tool here: https://cat.eduroam.org


Eduroam is preinstalled on the university’s centrally administered computers. If you wish to have eduroam on your own computer, you must install it yourself, see the instructions below. Eduroam will be automatically suggested for connection whenever you are in an area covered by eduroam.

Log in to eduroam using the university’s user account in the format username@helsinki.fi (e.g. rkeskiva@helsinki.fi) OR username@ad.helsinki.fi (e.g. rkeskiva@ad.helsinki.fi). Visitors from other universities can log in to eduroam with their own home organisation user account if the organisation is listed as part of the eduroam network. Eduroam cannot be used with a limited user account.
