Wireless networks at the University of Helsinki

The University of Helsinki has several wireless networks:

  • HelsinkiUni is a new wireless network for centrally managed university staff Windows laptops. 
  • Eduroam is international wireless network for staff, students and members of the eduroam network.
  • HelsinkiUni Guest network is intended for users who do not have university credentials or access to the eduroam network.

HelsinkiUni

A new wireless universal network is available on the University’s centrally managed Windows workstations. No separate login is required. The network will be automatically available when the settings have been installed on the computer.

Please note! The HelsinkiUni network is visible on the list of wireless networks on all devices at university campuses but only works on centrally managed university staff Windows laptops (automatically). This means you cannot connect to the network using your university credentials on e.g. Mac laptops or smartphones.

Eduroam

Eduroam is international wireless network for staff, students and members of the eduroam network. The network can be accessed with the geteduroam application.
