Students and staff use the wireless network called eduroam. It is part of a global network provided by universities and alike. It works in most Finnish universities and also internationally.


Arcada-guest is used by visitors. It has a very limited bandwidth and students and staff should not need to use it. The password changes daily and is published on the information screen at the big square, on ARBS under Rapport - Guest WiFi, on every room-booking and on start.arcada.fi when logged on.
