Internet Access

High-speed surfing round the clock without extra costs

Fast and uncomplicated internet connection in the AKAFÖ student hostels.

It has already been indicated in the small print of your rental agreement: The network access is part your property. Take a close look, and you will discover a separate data socket on the room wall. This socket is your connection point to a high-speed Ethernet-based network. This is a fiber-optic network provided by the company Glasfaser Bochum GmbH &Co. KG. The data transfer is effected much faster than with a common DSL connection.

The user ID is for example „user name@domain name“. The domain name shall hereby be replaced by the domain name of either an external research institution or a University. „user name@domain name“ often corresponds to the email address of the respective external University of the research institution. The password is identical with the respective password at the home University. For questions on an external user name or a password, you are kindly asked to contact your home University exclusively. We are not able to assist you in this issue.

With your user details, you can also register at the lock-and-key website (see above) and use the internet access.
