Internet Access

Without computer support and internet access, the items and information offered by a library are almost impossible to use anymore. Therefore, the goal of the University of Stuttgart Library is to offer you a comprehensive infrastructure in this area.

WiFi Coverage

At both library locations, City Center and Vaihingen, the public areas are provided with WiFi access points. Following networks are available here:

  • eduroam

- Target group: Members of the University of Stuttgart and members of other institutions of the eduroam federation

Via the eduroam service you have the possibility to use the wireless network access of the University without a VPN client.

  • konferenz 

- Target group: Participants of an event at the University of Stuttgart (conferences, meetings, or other official events of the University of Stuttgart on campus) without eduroam access 

Via the SSID “konferenz” participants of an event can login with a daily password that you receive from the organizer.
When reserving event rooms of the University of Stuttgart Library, you can choose the option to assign a conference password.

Information on how to use the WiFi can be found on the IZUS-TIK web pages.

VPN Access

Off-campus you can connect to the university network via VPN access. 

The principle: Within the existing internet connection, the VPN login establishes a protected connection to the university network. That way you can, regardless of your location, also use services and offers that would otherwise only be accessible on computers in the campus network. 

Usually, you need the software Cisco Any Connect to establish the protected connection on your device.

Information on how to use VPN and on the client software can be found on the IZUS-TIK web pages.
