UKF provides freely accessible computers and wireless networks to its students and staff in almost all university buildings through Eduroam network.

Connecting to the network requires only the username and password which visitor (foreign student or staff) is using in his home institution. In case his home institution is not involved in EDUROAM project, student or staff connects to the our Wifi using the access data given by UKF along with the ISIC card (student) or guest card (staff).
