Wireless networks on Campus

You can connect to wifi at Karolinska Institutet's campus area. There are different networks for employees, students, partners and guests.

For employees with KI computer: KI Staff

KI Staff is a wireless network that you have access to with a KI computer (a computer that is managed by the IT Office at the central university administration). The network starts automatically when you want to surf wirelessly and does not require an extra login.

When you are connected to KI Staff, you do not need to connect via VPN but automatically have access to all KI's resources.

For students and employees without KI computer: eduroam

If you do not have a KI computer or are a student, you can use eduroam. You will find instructions on how to install and connect to eduroam in the manuals below.

To be able to connect to eduroam for the first time, you must be connected to the network, for example via a network cable or another wireless network.


Guides on how to install eduroam on your PC/Mac and iPhone/Android

Once you have installed eduroam, you will automatically be logged in every time you receive an eduroam network.

To access KI's internal resources via eduroam, you must connect via the VPN-service.

Is VPN required to access what you need to work on?

The IT Office has actively worked to reduce the number of systems and services that require VPN to access remotely - and the vast majority can now be accessed by simply logging in with your KI ID. On the VPN page you will find an up-to-date list of what does and does not require a VPN.

If you do not need to use a VPN for what you are working on at the moment, you can simply ignore establishing a connection through VPN.

Did you know…?

Eduroam is a collaboration between colleges and universities around the world to facilitate the use of each other's wireless networks. Eduroam is available at many institutions both in Sweden and abroad. Always use the settings that apply to Karolinska Institutet, also in places outside of KI's campus.

NOTE! When you make your regular password changes - remember to enter your new password to connect to eduroam.

For partners: KI Access

Employees at one of KI's partners, such as Region Stockholm, can connect via KI Access. From KI Access you reach some of KI's resources. The network is available for example in Bioclinicum.

To gain access to KI Access you can turn to the IT support at your organisation.

For guests: KI Guest

At KI's campus in Solna and Flemingsberg there is a wireless guest network (wifi) that visitors to conferences and seminars can use. The guest network has the same coverage area as KI's own wireless network.

To get the login information to the guest network, contact the reception in Aula Medica on telephone number +46 8 524 866 00 or reception@ki.se or IT-responsible at your department.

In order not to overload the network, KI Guest should only be used by guests and not by employees or students.


For any problems or questions, please contact Helpdesk.
