TERENA’s Eduroam initiative is a roaming service that enables researchers and students in Europe to establish a Wi-Fi connection on their visits to other institutions that are connected to Géant. The users at institutions that have signed up with Eduroam are thus able to access the Internet through the participating institutions’ wireless networks.
Providing a host institution belongs to Eduroam users will be able to connect to wireless networks in much they same way as at their home institutions: the username and password required to sign in will be the same as at their home institutions, although the method for accessing the network may vary from institution to institution.
As a member of Eduroam, the University of Lleida enables its own users and users from other institutions that belong to Eduroam to gain network access. CESCA (Supercomputing Centre of Catalonia), is responsible for managing the technical and administrative links between the participating institutions of the Eduroam Project.

If you are either a member of the UdL or the Eduroam initiative, you should use the essid eduroam. This will grant you access to all internal UdL resources (the library’s electronic journals, the UdL intranet, etc.).
If you are not a member of the UdL nor the Eduroam initiative, you should use the essid visitant. (Note: in order to use this access, you should ask the person who invited you to the UdL). This connection does not grant access to internal UdL resources since the data traffic is not encrypted.
Who do I contact if I have problems?
If you belong to the UdL community, you can send an e-mail from your UdL account to the following address:
If you don't belong to the UdL community but you are an Eduroam member, you must contact your home institution.
