  • For employees, the network account (username@tuwien.ac.at) serves as access authorisation. 
  • For students, the student account (eXXXXXXX@student.tuwien.ac.at) serves as access authorisation. 
  • Other accounts (username@mobil.tuwien.ac.at) can be applied for via our Online Account Management. (No eduroam authorisation!)

A password change, opens an external URL in a new window is possible at any time.

Those authorised for account release can create:

  • a guest account (eg for guest professors or employees of external companies) of the form username@mobil.tuwien.ac.at with a non-modifiable username-password combination for a maximum of 28 days. This account is active immediately.
    (No eduroam authorisation!)
  • Conference accounts of the form YYYYYnnn@conference.tuwien.ac.at (for “YYYYY”, it makes sense to choose a maximum five-digit prefix as a conference code). When first created, 50 users are created. The number of accounts can then be increased in increments of 50 each to max. 999. A start and end date (up to one month) can be selected.
    (No eduroam authorisation!)

For students, co-workers, visiting professors with guest account and conference participants with conference account, access to the encrypted (tap-proof) TUnet WLAN is provided primarily via the SSID “tunet”.

If for some reason the configuration does not succeed, the “open” WLAN with the SSID “tunetguest” is an alternative variant. Although authentication is secured over SSL (via HTTPS web portal), all traffic remains unencrypted.
Therefore, you must ensure secure transmission (ssh, ssl, VPN, …) yourself!

The following instructions apply to the encrypted WLAN networks "tunet" and "eduroam".

Boundary conditions and restrictions: Blocked ports between TUnet and Internet
