eduroam provides encrypted access to the RWTH wireless network. The WLAN SSID "eduroam" is available at many research facilities worldwide. This means, if you have configured your WLAN device to use eduroam at the RWTH, you will be able to use this device, without any reconfiguration, at all other universities that also offer "eduroam". Your device is "allowed" (authenticated) into the eduroam network by your home university.
Upon account activation every RWTH student, staff member and partner receives the WLAN entitelment. With this entitlement, you are allowed to generate so called "eduroam device credentials" (username and password) which then allow connection to eduroam.
- generate seperate eduroam credentials for each one of your wlan devices
- download and install the eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool on your device (necessary TLS-Certificates are also installed)
- get more information and assistance at our Treffpunkt für mobile Geräte
- if you still prefer to do the manual configuration, please use the available user guides
Information in this wiki
RWTH guests can use the SSID RWTH-guests.
As a guest you have two options
- login using the guest account you have received from your host. RWTH staff can generate guest accounts and forward these to their invited guests (who don't have eduroam credentials), enabling them fast internet access.
- if you haven't received a guest account, you still get internet access, but your internet connection is pretty lame, as all "unauthorised" guests have to share a 100Mbps uplink to the Internet.
Guests and hosts can get further information by visiting our WLAN guest accounts webpage.
