Wi-Fi access via UniKoeln-WEB

UniKoeln-WEB allows for an easy access to a Wi-Fi network at the University of Cologne. There is no need to install any software, the only requirement is a web browser with enabled Java.

Caution: The connection to the Wi-Fi station (except for the registration) is unencrypted and can easyly be traced or manipulated with special programs. Many websites with sensitive data (like banks or webmail-services) use HTTPS-connections for their security, which create channels between the website and your computer, but those can be manipulated as well. Please pay attention to security allerts from your web browser and reports about broken or defective certificates.

Connecting to the network

Regardless of the operating system used, you must first connect to the Unikoeln-WEB Wi-Fi network by selecting this network in your Wi-Fi manager.

  • The UniKoeln-WEB network is designed for temporary access to the university network, such as guest access when no other Wi-Fi access is configured on a laptop. It is recommended that you configure access to eduroam for an encrypted connection. 
  • We recommend that you use the Windows Wi-Fi configuration tool and not the tools provided by the manufacturer of the laptop or the Wi-Fi adapter to configure your access to a wireless network.
