With eduroam members of the Ulm University and the Hochschule Ulm have the option of logging worldwide at other universities and scientific institutions with their user account in the local WLAN. So you have also the possibility to use the wifi eduroam at our dormitory.
You must set your wireless interface configuration according to the specifications given below. You can find an overview of the participating eduroam institutions under

To keep it short we only describe the installation with Uni Ulm Accounts. We reference to the official german KIZ-Manual. To use eduroam as a student from Hochschule Ulm you could try to use this Manual.
The eduroam configuration, you should definitely make on site at the University of Ulm and test for proper function. This is the condition that you are in other places – without changing the configuration – can log on to the network eduroam, e.g. at the upperwestside.
