We recommend using eduroam for Wi-Fi access at the University of Cologne. Eduroam offers both members of the University and international guests from other universities wireless internet access. This requires the participation of the university in the roaming programme.
In the following section, we have prepared configuration instructions for all major operating systems:
Username for eduroam
The username is always the same as the username for the University of Cologne account (Student or employee account) +"@uni-koeln.de", for example "email@example.com". Students must also add "@uni-koeln.de". This is not an e-mail address and it is not possible to use alias names to log on (firstname.lastname@example.org is not a valid username).
Information for eduroam users of other universities
If you are a member of another university which is also a member of the eduroam initiative, you may use eduroam at our campus as well. Please refer to the instructions of your university when configuring your devices. The manuals above are only valid for users of the university of cologne.
If you have any questions or problems, please contact the RRZK-Helpdesk
