FAQ about eduroam
How do I identify myself?
The easiest way to prove your identify is to show a valid photo ID at the servicecenter and say that you want to prove your identity. The vast majority have already done so in connection with getting the West Card.
Another possible way to prove your identity is by using an electronic identification. In our system, you can do so by browsing to http://mittkonto.hv.se, click Edit, log in, and choose to identify yourself. Then you are able to prove your identity by signing in with the login you received from antagning.se
You set your eduroam password and manage your passwords in the system My Account. Note that the passwords for HV account and eduroam must be different, but they have the same safety requirements.
If you previously have installed eduroam and then change your eduroam password, you will need to change the password in the eduroam connection on your devices. You usually do this by reinstalling eduroam.
