In addition to the established networks it is possible to set up a WiFi for individual institutes. There are the following requirements:

  • an existing WiFi coverage of the particular room; we are happy to visit you for a consultation.
  • connection of the APs via a managed switch which also switches the institutes LAN network.

The monthly fee is calculated on request and depends on the amount of required APs.


Renaming "WLAN/VPN"-Account


In the course of important changes to the use of eduroam at the RWTH Aachen, a two-stage change process is taking place.

On June 4th, 2019 the account "WLAN/VPN" is renamed in "VPN". Users who use login data in the form of + "WLAN / VPN" password for eduroam won't be able to use the university's WIFI any longer. To use eduroam, please create login data via the eduroam device manager.

The use of the institute WLAN is still possible with the usual access data and initially remains untouched by these changes.

Please note this when logging in or when changing the password in self-service!

Important changes regarding the use of eduroam at the RWTH Aachen are summarized in the most important information.

New instructions have been compiled for you under instructions for you.
