    WiFi

    WiFi is available in most of the university buildings, such as lecture halls, seminar rooms, foyers and on some outdoor areas on the campus. The installed AccessPoints for WiFi  allow students, employees and guests to use the WiFi.

    See the blue wireless information sign for areas where WiFi is available.

    The access points of the university offer the WiFi eduroam and @BayernWLAN. They are briefly described here. Expand the menu items.

    • encrypted connection
    • devices must be configured once via the CAT tool before using eduroam.

    If members of the university connect to eduroam in the campus area of the University of Würzburg, the connection is automatically routed to the university network. You can then access services that are restricted to the university network, e.g. library e-books.

    Services that are generally restricted, such as on-site access via LAN, are of course excluded, e.g. Windows and Office activation for employee PCs.

    However, eduroam connections are not routed to the university network if you connect to eduroam from another university, for example.

    Students and members of the University of Würzburg need an active user account for eduroam.

    Members of other institutions who use eduroam as a guest at the University of Würzburg must set up their end devices according to the eduroam configuration of their home institution. If you have any questions, please contact your home institution, not the computer center of the University of Würzburg.

    Go to WiFi eduroam configuration.

    • @BayernWLAN is offered by Vodafone in the order of the Free State of Bavaria
    • unencrypted connection
    • public access to the Internet
    • you are not connected to the network of the university. Therefore, services limited to the university network are not available, e.g. e-books library. For support, please contact Vodafone: forum.vodafone.de/t5/Bayern-WLAN/bd-p/BayernWLAN

    We recommend students and employees of the university to use @BayernLAN on the campus site only in exceptional cases. If, for example, technically eduroam can not be installed on the device or temporary WiFi is required to configure eduroam. Preferably use the encrypted WiFi eduroam or RZUWsec. @BavariaWLAN is useful for guests at the university who can not use eduroam of their home institution.

    Which WLAN should I use?

    Briefly

    Students, employees and guests of the university with user account -----> eduroam
    Guests with eduroam access via their home base -----> eduroam
    all other guests -----> @BayernWLAN

    In detail:

    You configure eduroam CAT once on your mobile device and can then use it without having to log in each time you use it.

    If you connect to eduroam in the campus area of the University of Würzburg, the connection is automatically routed to the university network. This allows you to access services that are restricted to the university network, e.g. library e-books.

    Services that are generally restricted, such as on-site access via LAN, are of course excluded, e.g. Windows and Office activation for employee PCs.

    However, eduroam connections are not routed to the university network if you connect to eduroam from another university.

     

    Guests who connect via eduroam have WLAN access, but no access to the university network.


    If you have any problems, please contact your home institution.

    It is a public access to the Internet with an unencrypted radio connection. It should be reserved for people who do not have eduroam access.


    Members of the University of Würzburg can also use @BayernWLAN, but should always prefer eduroam!

    Do without the combination @BayernWLAN plus VPN and use eduroam instead.
