Access to UJ_WiFi or eduroam

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.

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

After choosing the UJ_WiFi network, you only need to enter your login and password to the wireless network – your e-mail address (usually in the form of in the case of an employee, for a student or for a PhD candidate) and the relevant password. After the first successful connection to the network, the devices usually remember the network settings and each subsequent connection will occur automatically.

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 has not been entered into the USOS system with their student number 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 in accordance with the procedure for allocating guest accounts at the Jagiellonian University. The procedure is available at
