Wireless network

Last Updated: 26/03/2022

Iscte’s wireless network service covers much of the campus and is accessible via eduroam and ISCTE-IUL networks.Guest.

Eduroam (Education Roaming) is a mobility service developed for the international teaching and research community.

This service guarantees secure access to the Internet to students, professors, researchers and institutional collaborators, through the wireless network of your institution or any participating institution you are visiting.

This means that either at your home institution or visiting other institutions, users have secure access with their usual login.

Eduroam is uninterrupted and secure Wi-Fi access worldwide.

In Portugal, integration into the eduroam network is guaranteed to all institutions that have a connection to the RCTS network, as is the case of Iscte.

Consult the lists of the participating institutions here.
