Network access on campus

eduroam - Wireless LAN via associated University network

The University of Mainz takes part in the eduroam network, in which universities have joined forces in Europe (in the meantime even worldwide).

Under the network name (SSID) eduroam, the center operates campus-wide data processing for an encrypted wireless LAN. WPA/WPA2 Enterprise with TKIP and AES encryption serve as security mechanisms. The coverage is consistent with the coverage for the wireless LAN uni-mainz (with the exception of the University Clinic areas).

Members of other universities participating in the European eduroam network can connect to the eduroam wireless LAN via the University of Mainz, by logging in with the account of their home university.

Conversely, members of the University of Mainz who are at other universities in the eduroam Network can use eduroam with the Mainz University account.

Instructions for setting up eduroam with different operating systems can be found here.
