Vysoká škola báňská - Technická univerzita Ostrava provides on-campus wireless connectivity for its employees and students. Users can access following networks (SSID):

EDUROAM - preferred connection

If you travel often among universities, it may be useful to setup eduroam. This network also allows visitors from other academic institutions to connect to the Internet.

Enter the username syntax login@vsb.cz, eg. abc123@vsb.cz, as is indicated in the instructions. This username syntax is strictly required. User of VSB-TUO must set up a wifi password.

A) Automatic configuration (eduroam CAT/geteduroam)

  1. Delete the previous profile eduroam network from your system if you have any,
  2. The eduroam.cz website provides an overview of operating systems configurable using eduroam CAT / geteduroam.
    Android version >= 8.0 is only configurable with geteduroam. - Instructions for automatic configuration on Android
  3. Select the VSB - Technical University of Ostrava organization.
  4. After running the installer, enter the login name in the format login@vsb.cz and enter your wifi password.

Automatic configuration systems are designed as a platform for the cooperation of subjects involved in the eduroam project and are not developed or managed by VSB-TUO. Installers change the security settings on your device, you should always make sure it comes from a trusted source.

B) Manual configuration


The network designed for terminal equipment, which do not support any authentication and encryption mechanisms, or. are technical problems with them.
Why is not safe to use a network tuonet-simple can be found here.


The network is intended for users with created account with limited validity, so called "guest access". Individual visitors of VSB-TUO or users at various events such as conferences, etc. can join this network.

How to apply for service setup

Temporary access is requested by VSB-TUO employees through the IT Helpdesk or the faculty administrators can also be contacted. The established approaches are limited in time and intended only for the performance of activities related to work, research or teaching purposes.

The application shall specify:

  • guest identity (name, surname, email address)
  • from when and until when the guest account is to be set up
  • the purpose for which access is established

Service parameters
Users of this network are connected outside the VSB-TUO network, they only have access to the Internet. Access is set up only for users who do not have standard access to WiFi network VSB-TUO (eduroam, ...) for a maximum of 14 days. Once set up, your account is active within one minute.

Access instructions including login details are then sent to the guest's email address and eventually the access guarantee (VSB-TUO employee).

Authentication to the tuonet-guest network is done by automatically redirecting the web browser page to the authentication form (as with tuonet-simple).
