Ethernet Sockets in every Room

An Ethernet socket provided by us is available in each room. Just connect your device with a cable and start surfing! Contact us, if you should need a cable. You can connect any number of devices by using a switch. Using your own routers and access points is unfortunately not possible.

WiFi in the Dorms

Netzwerk KaWo.ac e.V. offers WiFi through our network “kaworoam” covering the premises of KaWo 1 and KaWo 3. Due to the nature of WiFi, the speed can vary, especially in the evenings. We are continuously expanding our WiFi and are always open to feedback!

To connect, you select the network “kaworoam” and log in with your device specific identity and password. Credentials for your devices can be created at the self-service portal.

Cloud

We offer you a cloud in which you can upload your data to always have a backup or to share data with others. 10GB are available to every resident.

Our Nextcloud instance is available at cloud.kawo.ac.

TV

We offer our residents the opportunity to receive TV programs on our network.

Directly open tv.kawo.ac with the VLC player or a comparable program. For even more features and convenience, we offer the option to use the Kodi program with the TVHeadend plugin. The server URL for this is tv.kawo.ac

KaWo.ac Selfservice my.kawo.ac

my.kawo.ac is the user portal of the Netzwerk KaWo.ac e.V.. Here you can see your account information, request new passwords and access many other functions. The range of functions is constantly being expanded, so please check back regularly.

Support

Even if we try to provide our services as uninterruptedly as possible and without errors, it can happen that something “slips through our fingers.”

If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at kawo.ac/contact.

Email Addresses for Residents

Upon request, we provide residents with an email address ending in kawo1.rwth-aachen.de or kawo3.rwth-aachen.de. Incoming emails are either forwarded to your registered email address or you can check them in an email inbox. You can make the appropriate settings yourself in our Selfservice.

Accessing mails on the web is possible at mail.kawo.ac.
