Network service for facilities

Almost all buildings and facilities of the University of Bonn are connected to the university network BONNET.
In addition to the central network infrastructure (VPN, eduroam, WiFi-BONNET), which enables personal access to the data network, there is a support service for facilities that deals with facility-related questions about access to BONNET and the worldwide internet.

For whom?


This service is exclusively for administrators of the University of Bonn.

What for?

  • Network connection of buildings and decentralised facilities (both for existing buildings and for leases)
  • Network building connections / floor connections
  • Patching of data sockets
  • Activation of data sockets
  • Allocation of IP subnets
  • Allocation of DNS domains
  • Rules/activations in the central firewall
  • Operation of institute WiFi
  • Operation of institute VPNs
  • Operation of institute firewalls
  • Network connection of decentralised servers

How does it work?

Use is only possible by decentralised administrators or the University's Facility Management.

You can find a detailed explanation in our HRZ-Doku.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at netadmin@uni-bonn.de.


Detailed information and instructions can be found in the HRZ-Doku.
(Call only possible from the BONNET)


As a rule, we only offer a few standardised procedures for services, as the management of diverse special cases is not possible for us for various reasons. We often manage to find a suitable solution with a standard procedure in consultation with you, but unfortunately this is not always possible.

We try to deal with requests as quickly as possible. However, there can always be delays if there are other acute enquiries, if we need to consult with colleagues, if the appropriate experts are absent (and/or the relevant information needs to be gathered) or if access to certain rooms needs to be organised. Therefore, please write to us as early as possible.
