Eduroam off Campus

In a pilot project together with Magdeburg-City-Com GmbH (MDCC), the eduroam network has been broadcast at the public "otto hotspot" in the Magdeburg city area since July 2020. Thus, for example, along the Breite Weg between Universitätsplatz and Hasselbachplatz, on the Alter Markt, Domplatz, in the zoo or the Elbauenpark, it is possible to access the scientific network without restrictions and to pursue one's studies or scientific work.

Detailed information can be found in our press release (in German).

An overview of all locations can be found at MDCC (in German).
