Eigene SSID

WiFi with individual SSID


Your WiFi access to your institute network

HRZ offers organizational units of TU Darmstadt provision of Wi-Fi access with its own identifier (SSID) on the centrally operated access points (AP) of TU.

This is what this service offers you

The service can be used to create your individual Wi-Fi access to an institute network in a defined area, for example for office, test or laboratory space.

  • A network is entered as a WPA2-PSK network with an agreed password, or
  • the individual authentication is carried out via selected TU-IDs (web interface) or via a self-operated authentication server (RADIUS).

General conditions – important security information
