At Jacobs University, all lecture halls and most of the campus allow Wireless LAN access.
This map shows locations of access points on campus (click for full size):
The network is called eduroam and will announce itself. You can also search for it.
Although setup of eduroam is more complicated than the setup of Jacobs Access, it is the recommended WLAN setup, as it uses strong encryption for the wireless data transmission, and is available in wireless networks of other participating institutions worldwide.
The network is called JACOBS and will announce itself. You can also search for it.
In any case, you need your JACOBS user account to proceed.
Against common disbelief the phrase "in time" means here: "at least one work day in advance".
If you require secure communication, be sure to use the eduroam setup or use web pages via https and/or use VPN Access over Jacobs WLAN!
