Clicking on the blue tab opens a window in which you can find the profile file for your associated organisation (also use the search option if you do not see “University of Leipzig”).

Select “Universität Leipzig”.

You will now reach the following selection, which is to be chosen according to the personal affiliation to the organisation:

  1. Uni Leipzig: Profile file for members (staff, students, guests) of Leipzig University for access to the “eduroam” network without access to internal services (mostly private devices and devices of the university that do not use internal services).
  2. Uni Leipzig – intern/fip: Profile file for employees of the Leipzig University for access to the “eduroam” network with access to internal services (devices of the university)
  3. Uni Leipzig – externe Nutzer:innen Universitätsbibliothek: Profile file for holders of a library card of the Leipzig University library for access to the “eduroam” network
  4. Uni Leipzig – Medizinische Fakultät: Profile file for employees and guests of the Faculty of Medicine for access to the “eduroam” network

Selecting the appropriate user group takes you to the following step. Click on the tab marked in red.
