Eduroam is the wireless network within UGent. Other educational and research institutions also use Eduroam. This way, students and staff of all those institutions can use each other's wireless network.
Install Eduroam for UGent staff and students
How do I connect?
Select the 'eduroam' network and enter your login firstname.lastname@example.org or e-mailaddress and your UGent password when asked.
(Make sure there are no spaces before or after your username).
The first time you connect, the question whether you trust the certificate that is presented by the network appears. This is a normal security question. The certificate authority (CA) is Sectigo RSA Organization Validation Secure Server CA and the "radius server" is radius.ugent.be.
Accept the certificate.
In order to avoid that the annual renewal of the Eduroam certificate falls in the exam period, we are replacing the certificate again on 21/9. Only the date and serial number will change. Normally this will not cause any problems but in rare cases you may be asked to accept the certificate again.
The settings at UGent are the following:
