Wireless Networks

You can access wireless networks in all University facilities. There are three networks; UTU Visitor, Eduroam, and UTU Staff.

 

UTU Visitor

UTU Visitor is the wireless network for visitors. You can log in through a portal webpage. The network covers the entire campus.

Usage

To begin using the network, choose UTU Visitor from the list of available networks on your device. After you have connected to the network, you will need to open a browser window and you will be redirected to the registration page.

On the registration page, enter your name and an email address (where the login credentials will be sent), and accept the network's terms and conditions. You will be logged in automatically and redirected to the network's guide service.
