Service for employees, students


Members of the University of Stuttgart gain secure access to the university network from anywhere via a VPN client.

Important notice

Due to the high utilization of the VPN accesses, we have put a second VPN system into operation:

This system has a "stateful firewall" and allows UDP traffic to the Internet. This can be especially advantageous when using video conference services.

Currently, you can NOT log in to if your personal password contains special characters in ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1) format (e.g. §, µ, ä, ü, ö...). A registration on is still possible.
