Support, IT

Wireless Internet

There are two wireless networks at the University of Gothenburg. The encrypted network eduroam (EDUcation ROAMing) is a global collaboration where universities give each other access to their wireless networks. In order to connect to eduroam you need a user account (from a membership organization, e.g. university). The computer must also be configured with a client and the correct settings. The details of configuration will vary depending on the equipment used by the user's "home university". Please consult your university's local IT support for questions and help with setup.

The unencrypted network Göteborgs universitet is intended for occasional guests and visitors at the University of Gothenburg, who do not have access to eduroam. You can get a temporary guest account at the Reception.

Computer room

There is a computer room with eight computers connected to Internet, for students to use. It is located on the second floor of the Main Building.

The print and copy service GUprint – coupled to the GU card – is used by students and by scientists and other employees.
