The wireless network is accessible to all users of the library and covers the entire library. To gain access to the network, you need to log on to 'eduroam' or 'KB-Guest' - the latter requires that you accept the terms of use.

If you need help getting online access, please contact Vejledningen (Guidance) on the first floor.

Please note, that eduroam connection requires that you are from an institution, that is part of the Eduroam collaboration. Contact your own institution to get information on how to access Eduroam.
