The Computer Centre provides on-campus WiFi access for mobile devices. At workstations, it is recommended that you use the university network (LAN) which has a higher bandwidth.
The WiFi is available in most buildings on campus and in some off campus. The connection does not cover all rooms on campus and the performance can vary greatly, also depending on the number of users.
A valid university account is required to access the WiFi.
The following three WiFis are available at the university:
- myCampus can be used by any user on campus who has a valid Reutlingen University account (students, professors, lecturers, staff, pensioners, students of the Evangelische Hochschule, guests and KFRU participants). External library users are not eligible.
- eduroam can be used by all members of Reutlingen University (students, professors, lecturers, employees, pensioners) as well as all members of universities that have joined the eduroam service. Information about eduroam can be found here.
- guestCampus is intended for participants of events at the University. Upon request, you can receive temporary guest access for the duration of the event.
Current Issue (as of 01.10.2021)
Due to a certificate problem, there are restrictions when accessing guestCampus. A warning will appear that the connection is not secure. This must be in order to use the guest WLAN.
As this is a bug in the new firmware, this has been reported to the manufacturer.

Data Backup / Hosting
The infrastructure for the WiFi services is operated by Reutlingen University. Apart from the backup of the system configuration to enable recovery after a crash, no data is stored.
Access to myCampus and eduroam does not have to be requested. Access to guestCampus for event participants can be requested via the Service Desk two working days in advance by professors, staff and students responsible for the project. The following information is required:
- Fore- and surname of the guest
- Desired duration of access
- Employee who receives the guest
When using the WiFi, the IT and Media Services regulations must be followed.
Access to the university's WiFi expires when the user account is deleted.
