Conference account

As a member of the University of Cologne with an employee account, you can apply for wireless network access to the UKLAN university network for conferences. Please read our terms of use.

A staff member applying for this account must keep a list of the names of guests who they give access details to (first name, last name, account name). This list must be submitted to the Data Protection Officer if required.

Please send the completed application by post to the RRZK Helpdesk or a scanned copy via e-mail to rrzk-helpdesk(at)

Your access to the internet during a conference


Für die Teilnehmenden einer Tagung steht das WLAN-Netz "Conference@University of Cologne" zur Verfügung. Bei der Anmeldung in diesem Netz benötigen Sie einen Tagungs-Account, den Sie von Ihrer Tagungsorganisation erhalten.  

Sie können sich weiterhin im eduroam-Netz mit dem Tagungs-Account der Universität zu Köln anmelden. Allerdings ist diese Option mit höherem Aufwand für Sie verbunden. Für die Anmeldung benötigen Sie ein Konfigurationsprofil, welches Sie auf unserer Webseite herunterladen können.

Members of other universities, that belong to the Initiative Education Roaming (eduroam), the access to Wi-Fi is also available on the campus of the University of Cologne. The registration is done with the account data of the own university.

Conference accounts can also be used to access guest network sockets at the University of Cologne. These are located in the lecture halls and are labelled with a sticker.

Members of other universities who are part of the Education Roaming (eduroam) initiative can also use the wireless network on campus. Users will need to register with the account details from their own university.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact the RRZK-Helpdesk
