Teaching staff welcome kit

Welcome. Below is a list of things that will help you out when starting university life.

  • Access the internet

    Connect to the network

    You will have immediate temporary access to the network without any need for configuration. You can use both the “polimi” wi-fi and wired access.
    To connect, simply authenticate yourself by inputting your university credentials.
    At a later stage you can configure your permanent and encrypted access, which you will need to use the Virtual desktop.
