Computer access

Internet Connection 

We recommend to connect your devices wirelessly selecting the CERN network or EDUROAM -- and never the CERN-VISITORS one.


In order to have access to the Internet connection for your laptop, you need to register it via the online laptop registration form. Due to the large number of participants, we recommend that you register your laptop in advance, before your actual arrival to CERN.

TH department, CERN hostels and main buildings are also covered by EDUROAM network.

To register your device on the CERN network:

- Follow the link to the network connection request form
- Enter your data and the hardware address and card type of your device (you can register at the same time both wireless and ethernet hardware addresses of the same machine but we ask to register different devices separately )  
- Enter your arrival and departure dates and the reason of your visit
- As contact person select Gianolio Elena

You can register as many devices as you need in this way (please one registration per device)

Once at CERN, if you did not register your device earlier or if something went wrong, just open a web browser from the concerned device and follow the instructions you will get on it. 

Other computing issues

- Please read the CERN Computing rules and regulations
- Fixed terminal computer access: Unfortunately, due to computer security protocols at CERN, it will not be possible to provide an account to log in by using the fixed computer terminals on site. The only way to access the internet is by using your own laptops, see above. 
- Laptop registration will be grant only to registered participants
