Android and wireless network (Wi-Fi / WLAN)

Connecting to the JYU wireless network (jyu-student & jyu-staff) and to eduroam on Android devices


With your JYU user account you can access three wireless networks:

  • jyu-student is for students at the JYU campus area
  • jyu-staff is for staff at the JYU campus area
  • eduroam can be used by students and staff on JYU campus as well as around the world on the campuses of many different academic institutions. More information about eduroam can be found here.

Note! Within JYU campus area please primarily use either jyu-student or jyu-staff networks!


jyu-student and jyu-staff work on Android after configuring the settings using your JYU username and password.
