Wireless network

Eduroam

At MDH the wireless network Eduroam is used. Eduroam is an international collaboration between most universities and university colleges in all parts of the world.

When you have configured your device (computer or telephone), it will automatically connect to the wireless Eduroam network, both at MDH and at other HEIs (higher education institutions), as long as your student account is active.

Eduroam at MDH is available only on the 5 GHz frequency band, and the device you want to connect with must support this. You log in to the network with your student account: your username followed by the ending @mdh.se and also your password.


Log in with your student account:

  • Your username followed by the ending @mdh.se
  • Password for your account

You can also try downloading an installer and following the guide to add Eduroam to your device. Download the installer External link..


MDH Guest

MDH Guest is a wireless network at MDH which is for people who don’t have an account to be able to connect to Eduroam. MDH Guest is available only on the 2.4 GHz frequency band, and has a lower speed compared with Eduroam. To gain access to MDH Guest, please contact the Student Centre to get a password.
