FAQs

Please check on a device with internet access whether you can log in to gosa.gosa.uni-bonn.de with your Uni-ID. If this is not the case, there is a problem with your Uni-ID. If you can log in there, please check whether the WLAN is set up for you according to the instructions (link to eduroam instructions) and/or set it up again if necessary. Otherwise, contact the IT Helpdesk.

Please check the signal strength of the WLAN. If the signal is weak, please contact your local administrator (if available), who may have an overview of the WLAN expansion at a location.
