This page provides basic information about Eduroam for visitors at Silesian University in Opava.



Eduroam is an international project engaged in supporting mobility and roaming within the National Research and Education Networks (NREN). In the Czechia, the project is carried out by the Cesnet.

This website provides information about connecting to the wireless network (WiFi) of Silesian University in Opava, which participates in this project.



In Eduroam, a unique identity consisting of a username with @ and a realm (domain name) attached is required for identification (e.g. It is always necessary to provide the complete identity including the realm, because the realm is used for directing authentication requests. Username without a realm is not valid within the Eduroam project.

Information on how to gain your own identity can be found on web pages of your home institution. A list of connected institutions is here.
