Wi-fi and VP

To connect the USPnet VPN with the AnyConnect app, students shall have the USP number and the unique password, which is the same as the portal

For more information, access the Ribeirão Preto Information Technology Center (USP) website


Eduroam (education roaming) is a secure wireless access service developed for the international education and research community. The initiative allows students, researchers, and teams from participating institutions to obtain internet connectivity, via wireless connection (wi-fi), within their campuses and any Venueity that offers this facility as a service provider.


All USP researchers (students, faculty and technical-administrative employees) must have their Orcid records authenticated.

Orcid solves problems of ambiguity and similarity of names, enables the integration of different players in the scientific publishing chain (authors, publishers, universities, funding agencies), and can be a profile – curriculum.

There are four ORCID instances at USP that coexist and can cause trouble. The ORCiD number is unique, but the USP link with ORCiD number only happens in instance 3 (below).

1) World ORCID registration

2) ORCID information in DataUSP-weR_USP

3) Registration of the USP number linked to the ORCiD number

4) ORCID information on Janus-graduate program

The link between n. USP and n. ORCiD is important for the future authentication of institutional information (training, employment, financing and production).

ORCID registration is free and open to all researchers. However, it is necessary to fill in the basic identification information, such as a resume, and add information such as biography, employment, training, jobs, etc.
