"Open your device and be online"

eduroam stands for EDUcation ROAMing and and under this motto has brought many organizations together throughout Europe and beyond Europe's borders so that all members can access wifi services.

Signing Into eduroam

All you need is a wireless supported device that supports a WPA2 encryption and an active JKU user ID.

In order to create international allocation, will be added to your username.

Example: or (Note: this is NOT an e-mail address!)

Use your e-Directory password that you use to access KUSSS, Novell, etc.

If eduroam is set up correctly on your device, it should connect automatically at the Johannes Kepler University Linz as well as outside of the university when at a participating organization that also uses eduroam.

For security reasons, the eduroam network at the Johannes Kepler University Linz is only supported by WPA2 encryption. Old devices that only have a WEP or WPA(1) encryption will not be able to access eduroam. In this case, we ask that you use the unencrypted guest network with the SSID "JKU".
