Guest Access

Guests visiting ETH can connect to the internet using WIFI for 24 hours through one of the following SSIDs:

  • public (2.4GHz)
  • public-5 (5GHz)

For internet access please connect your device to one of the SSIDs above. Depending on your device and software, a login window will pop up with the following page. If not you may need to open a browser and navigate to any page outside of ETH, e.g. ,

Alternatively guests from other universities from all over the world could try to use the SSID eduroam with the credentials of their home university. Check here to see which other organizations are using Eduroam. In this case no ETH specific guest account would be needed for simple Internet access only.
