WiFi-Access (eduroam)

The university's WiFi offers unlimited access to the internet as well as to many internal services, such as searching in journal catalogs, internal websites or printing from your mobile devices. The logon is part of the worldwide eduroam federation, so that participants of one institution can also use the access at all other institutions (including many public places).
