Access to UJ_WiFi or eduroam

The UJ_WiFi network uses the EAP-PEAP authentication method with the MSCHAPv2 internal protocol. This is the default method used in environments based on Microsoft's infrastructure.

Most devices and operating systems (Windows 11/10 / 8.1 / 8, MacOS or OS X, iOS) do not require installation of additional software or any special initial configuration when connected to this network.

If the operating system requires configuration, eg Android, please enter the following network parameters:

EAP method: PEAP
Second phase authentication: MSCHAPV2
Certification Authority Certificate: Use system certificates
Certification authority certificate
Apple and Android devices do not have on their list of trusted certification authorities the authority used by the Jagiellonian University and other European universities - GEANT OV RSA CA 4.
To connect to the Jagiellonian University wireless network, select the certificate with the signature:
SHA256 Fingerprint = B4:CF:F7:3A:0E:D4:BF:9B:07:80:AC:B5:32:F0:A0:7E:91:0D:8C:9A:57:B7:72:F2 :3B:79:76:6F:E3:AC:32:EA
SHA1 Fingerprint = FB:DE:42:DC:BB:6A:D7:22:3E:06:E4:D2:D6:46:A3:B2:4E:F1:FD:A2


  • e-mail address of the university account (usually in the form of for an employee, for a student or for a PhD student)

The eduroam system of the Jagiellonian University allows students and employees of the Jagiellonian University to gain free access to the Internet.

It can be used at other universities (in Poland and abroad) participating in the eduroam project, as well as at the Jagiellonian University.

Detailed information can be found on the following pages:

  • eduroam in Poland:
  • eduroam around the world:
  • eduroam at the Jagiellonian University:

The eduroam network at the Jagiellonian University uses the EAP-TTLS authentication method with the PAP internal protocol.

Network parameters:

EAP method: TTLS

Second phase authentication: PAP

The eduroam network requires dedicated CAT (Configuration Assistant Tool) software to be installed.

The network parameters are set automatically during CAT installation, therefore the above network parameters are provided for reference only.

The first time you try to connect to the eduroam network, please enter the full name of your e-mail account and the e-mail password. The data will be saved to the profile of the wireless network and subsequent connections to the eduroam network will be made automatically.


  • e-mail address of the university account (most often in the form of in the case of an employee, in the case of a student or in the case of PhD student)


  • password to the university e-mail account

Access to CAT installers

CAT installers can be downloaded directly from .

The user only needs to find his home institution.

Choose the following options: Choose your institution "Jagiellonian University in Krakow" and Download eduroam installer.

You don't need to select your device's operating system as it is recognized automatically.

It is recommended that you update by reinstalling this software when a new version is available. You can check the current version number in the lower left corner of the page.

As of 01/21/2022 the current version is "eduroam CAT - CAT-2.0.4 version"

CAT software installation

The installation process depends on the operating system. For Windows, it is an exe installer that fully interacts with the operating system settings, for Apple systems, the installer is a mobileconfig file, containing all the settings and run directly by the Safari browser, for Linux systems a script for the bash shell is distributed (the script contains all the data in it, including the Python program.

Connection The following systems are currently supported:

  • MS Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 11
  • Apple Mac OS X 10.7 and above (except support for personal certificates)
  • Apple iOS (except support for personal certificates) Android - from version 4.4 (requires downloading the application from Google Play
  • Linux (Network Manager)
  • Chrome OS


MS Windows

The eduroam installer comes in the form of an exe file.

When you click the download button, the installer will be saved by your browser on your computer. After launching and installing the installer, eduroam will be configured on your device and a wireless profile created.

The first time you connect to a wireless network, Windows will display a login window asking you to enter your username and password. This information will be saved so that the system will connect to the network automatically every time it is in range of the network.


Apple devices

The configuration file should be opened with the help of the system Safari browser. The profile will be installed automatically after clicking the button. You will be asked several times for input or confirmation:

  • to install the profile
  • to accept the server's Certification Authorities (2 times)
  • to enter the ID and password received from your institution



In the first step, you should install a program called geteduroam or eduroamCAT from the Google Play store.

Generally from version 8 of Android, and from version 11 it is obligatory to install the geteduroam program, and for older versions of Android edoroamCAT, but it also depends on the software specific for the phone manufacturer installed.

In the second step, download the software from For Android, it is a universal XML file in the IETF EAP Metadata -00 format, which is a "batch" file for geteduroam and eduroamCAT.



The installer is a script written in Python. It will try to configure eduroam with Network Manager, and if this cannot be done in the system, or if the Network Manager version is too old, a configuration file for wpa_supplicant will be prepared.

The installer will create a .cat_installer subdirectory in your home directory and copy the server certificates there.

During installation, you will be prompted for your login ID and password. This data will be remembered so that subsequent connections to the network will be made automatically. Chrome OS Installer is a file with the extension '.onc'. Download this file, open Chrome and go to chrome: // net-internals / # chromeos. Then use the 'Import ONC file' button. The import takes place without user interaction; the new preferred network will be added to the network settings.

Problems with the eduroam wireless network operation and any comments and requests should be reported by e-mail to or and by phone at 12 663 1290 .

PBelow you can find a full list of hardware requirements, which you have to meet to connect your computer to the University Wi-Fi network:

  • The device should have a Wi-Fi network card supporting the a/b/g standard.
  • The driver for the network card should be correctly installed in the device’s operating system.
  • The network adapter should be configured to configure IP address automatically using a DHCP server.
  • The device should be within the range of corporate Wi-Fi networks of the Jagiellonian University.
  • The network card software should be able to see the UJ_WiFi network.
  • WPA2-Enterprise with PEAP/GTC support is required to use the network.
  • The UJ_WiFi network uses the PEAPv0/EAP-MSCHAPv2 type of EAP-PEAP (Protected EAP) authentication method, usually used in environments based on Microsoft infrastructure. Authentication data is protected by TLS tunnel.

The user needs to be an employee, a PhD candidate or a student of the Jagiellonian University. They must have an active e-mail account on the central server of the Jagiellonian University (,,

If you are not a student or employee, you need a temporary account.

The reasons for not having access to WiFi can be as follows:

  1. Student dropped out.
    Solution: The student must return to university to enjoy Wi-Fi access.

  2. The student did not pay another instalment for paid courses.
    Solution: The student must cover all the outstanding payments and be reinstated as a student by the Secretariat of a relevant unit of the Jagiellonian University.

  3. The student completed their Master's degree but has not started their PhD studies yet.
    This problem usually occurs between June and October.
    Solution: Such a student usually does research during the summer break or works for the Department/Institute that accepted them for their doctoral studies. In such a case, the student’s supervisor should contact the head of the IT Services Department on behalf of the student and request granting access to the Wi-Fi network.

  4. Student has completed the course of their studies (for example doctoral studies); but has not yet defended their thesis or dissertation.
    Solution: As above. The student needs to prepare for the defence, which means that they often conduct some additional research.

In order to be able to solve this issue, please inform us about your problem by sending an e-mail to:

  1. and include the necessary details:

  • description of the problem - “no access to the Wi-Fi network”

  • Full name

  • organisational unit/course

  • address of the account concerned

  • contact information (currently used e-mail address or phone number)

This issue occurs when the student does not enter into the USOS system with their student number (given by the employees of the relevant dean’s office). Without this entry, the student cannot have access to the university Wi-Fi network.

In this case, the student number must be entered. This has been confirmed in the USOS Web section.

Guest Wi-Fi accounts for conference attendees and accounts for Jagiellonian University guests may be obtained by the procedure for allocating guest accounts at the Jagiellonian University. The procedure is available at
