University of Gothenburg is offering students and employees a wireless internet connection to facilitate work and study in today's increasingly mobile world.
Now all students can use GUWLAN (Göteborg University Wireless Local Area Network), the University’s wireless network which is being installed around University of Gothenburg. Even employees with an employee portal ('medarbetareportalen') account can use the system. Information about how to get connected to the wireless system can be found under the heading 'Getting started with GUWLAN' on the left.
eduroam (EDUcation ROAMing) is the roaming infrastructure used by the international research and education community that provides the eduroam user experience: open your laptop and be online.
Being part of eduroam allows users to access a wireless network at a visited institution (also connected to eduroam) simply using the same credentials (for instance, username and password) the users would use if they were at their home institution.
Although eduroam started in Europe, it soon gained momentum throughout the research and education community world wide. To date, there are two main eduroam confederations: the European eduroam confederation and the Asia-Pacific (APAN) eduroam confederation.

The Swedish education and research network SUNET and The Cloud have entered a partnership that gives researchers, students and staff at Sweden's universities and university colleges access to wireless Internet connection off-campus vith eduroam authentication on The Cloud's 4,500 or so access points in Sweden.
