UvA Students

Wireless internet

As a UvA student, you have access to the UvA’s wireless network at various UvA sites and in lecture and study rooms.

How to connect

To connect safely to the wireless network you need to activate the correct settings. Follow the instruction below:

  1. Do you already have an internet connection?
    If not, connect to the wireless network 'UvA Open Wi-Fi' or 'Amsterdam Science Park'.
    If you do, start with step 2.
  2. Go to wifiportal.uva.nl.
  3. Please read the page carefully and follow the step-by-step instructions.
  4. Enter your UvA-net ID (when requested) followed by @uva.nl, check your operating system and click on 'JoinNow'.
  5. The correct settings will be downloaded. You will be asked to enter the password of your UvA-net ID (up to three times).

You can now connect to the 'uva' and/or 'eduroam' network.

Please note: if you own an Android mobile phone (version 5.0 or later) it is possible that the Android System WebView application is blocking software downloads. If so, try a different Wi-Fi connection or make use of your own mobile network.
