Connect in the campuses

At the Universidade de Vigo we have implemented a wireless network that extends to all centres on all campuses. The network was designed to work with the most widely used operating systems.

The network is prepared for the 802.11b (11 Mbps), 802.11g (54 Mbps), 802.11N and 802.11ac standards, so all types of cards will work.


Three wifi networks available

  • Students
  • Staff
  • Eduroam

To connect to Alumnos e Persoal you only have to connect to the network and open a browser. We will connect by entering our UVigo email details.

Please note that the Universidade de Vigo Students and Staff wireless networks are not encrypted, that is, the connections are clear over the air, so that an advanced user could be able to see the communications. We warn about this so that users use the network carefully and confidently.


Recommended network: Eduroam

If we want to use a secure connection available in many centres around the world, we have a secure network called Eduroam, which can be used by both internal users of the Universidade de Vigo who wish to connect securely, as well as users from other institutions affiliated to the Eduroam project.

The aim of the Eduroam Project is to have connectivity and mobility between the different networks without world-wide research fios. In this way, a user from another university involved in this project can connect from our university with his or her ID and password, and an internal user from the Universidade de Vigo can connect from any of the networks included in Eduroam.

You can find more information about this project here. The coverage of the Eduroam wifi network at Universidade de Vigo is the same as the internal wifi networks and extends to all the centres of the three campuses. This network can also be used by Universidade de Vigo users who want to connect securely to the university network.


To connect to Eduroam

The easiest way to connect from the Universidade de Vigo is to use the EDUROAM-CAT platform to install the logical support. To do this we have to:

  1. Access the website
  2. Select Universidade de Vigo as the institution and download the logical support for our operating system.
  3. Enter your username and password and it is ready.
