The association Netzwerk KaWo.ac e.V. offers you extremely affordable, real high-speed access with FTTB glass fiber technology (Fiber to the basement) to the RWTH Aachen network. This service is not an internet connection as with commercial providers.
The network is managed and renewed by the association’s volunteers. Like you, we are also students and live with you in the dormitories. We are always looking for new people with whom we can continue to maintain and expand the network. If you are interested, drop by!

The dormitory is large and unfortunately we are not able to achieve perfect coverage with WiFi everywhere. We are constantly trying to improve the coverage and quality of our WiFi.
