Wifi service

Eduroam

The wifi service is available to all internal users and to external users who are members of Eduroam, an international federation of universities and research institutions.

Thanks to Eduroam, we can use our University credentials to access the wifi service when visiting one of its member universities, and our guests can do the same.

Eduroam provides fast and secure access to all the services of the University network from personal mobile devices.

Non-member guests

Institutions hosting non-member users for some time can assign their guests temporary accounts on the Eduroam network. The institution will appoint an internal delegate and notify eduroam@unimi.it. The wifi service will provide the delegate with the tools to create, edit, cancel temporary accounts.

The delegate will provide the guest with the login credentials (name.surname@wifi.unimi.it) required to access Eduroam. Guest users should change their password when they first log in.

Users of @wifi.unimi.it temporary accounts can only access the Eduroam network within the University.

Conferences and events

During conferences and events with numerous non-member guests for short periods, the unimi-convegni wifi network will be available in the Great Hall on via Festa del Perdono, in the boardroom on via S. Antonio and, upon request, in all the locations covered by the Eduroam signal.

University facilities can apply for signal activation and access credentials to eduroam@unimi.it, specifying the event time and location. For special connection requirements, or to obtain a network name other than unimi-convegni, please apply to eduroam@unimi.it.
