Access to the wired network


In order to guarantee users access to the data network (internet, intranet and not only), default connectivity services are available for the staff members stations, and on request for students and other users who want to access the network with personal devices.

For the University’s impromptu guests, connectivity is offered through the Eduroam Federation (for guests coming from Universities or Research Institutions that belong to it) or by issuing temporary credentials (so-called Visiting accounts). This group of services also includes VPNs - Virtual Private Networks for managing external traffic to University network resources.
