A remote connection, or a VPN connection, enables users to use the services of Aalto University outside of the university's network. At Aalto University, the client available is automatically distributed to all Aalto installed laptops. The remote connection can also be installed on students’ and employees’ own devices, in which case using the VPN requires the installation of separate client software and the specification of the connection address from the device’s settings.
Aalto University has three wireless networks in use: aalto, eduroam, and aalto open.
Eduroam is an international, academic roaming system that is primarily intended for visitors to Aalto University. Users of the network have limited access to the university’s internal services, such as the right to browse the library’s electronic materials. Follow the instructions below to install eduroam on Aalto University’s devices.
