eduroam stands for EDUcation ROAMing and realizes this motto with an association of many organizations all over Europe and beyond, in order to make internet available to all members at their own locations via wireless LAN.

All you need is a WLAN device that supports WPA2 encryption and an active FH user ID.

User name is appended to your user name so that you can make an international assignment.

For example: or, this is NOT an E-Mail address!)


The password is your usual user password, known from webmail, Levis, etc.

For security reasons, only WPA2 encryption is supported in the FH Upper Austria Eduroam network. Old devices that only master WEP or WPA1 cannot use Eduroam.

ATTENTION: It is strongly recommended to activate the identity of the remote station (= and the certificate check on the end device, so that a secure transfer of your user data is guaranteed.

You can now use Eduroam-CAT (Configuration Assistent Tools) for an automatic and secure configuration of your end device.
