Wi-fi in our accommodations
All accommodations of the Studentenwerk Schleswig-Holstein will be equipped with fast, powerful and unlimited Wi-Fi still in 2020. Thereby, we would like to provide you with optimal conditions for successful studies and to improve your personal quality of life. Regardless of whether surfing for your studies or for private purposes – very soon you will be able to do this as much as you like without a care. You will be no longer dependent on the filtered and limited internet of your university or on an individual internet connection with long contract periods.
To replace the old with the new technology, construction measures are necessary in your residence hall and in your room. For example, fibre optics have to be laid and new network sockets have to be mounted. The detailed construction plan is currently being worked out, so we cannot yet tell you when installations at your residence hall will actually begin. We will inform you about 14 days before work starts. Please understand if appointments may have to be rescheduled.
Thanks to federal funding, the modernization work is completely free of charge for you. However, we have to allocate the costs of operating the internet connections. As soon as the Wi-Fi is set up in your accommodation, your rent will increase by 21.09 Euro per month. Unfortunately, we cannot provide a free internet connection, but we can offer it for this fair price.
We hope you are looking forward to the fast internet as much as we do. A modern internet supply that meets international standards is of great importance not only for you, but also for future residents. Thus, studying in Schleswig-Holstein will get even more attractive!
What exactly is being renewed?
Why does the wiring in the house need to be replaced?
In most accommodations, the existing cabling no longer corresponds to the state of the art, so that no internet connection can be provided at high speeds using the existing cables. All accommodations are therefore retrofitted with CAT7 network cables and new network sockets are placed in the rooms. In accommodations that already have CAT7 cabling, only the network sockets are replaced. This is the only way we can establish a future-proof and fail-safe internet supply right into your room. Example: In many accommodations, only two-wire telephone cabling is currently available, which can achieve a maximum speed of only 2 Mbit/s in download and 768 kbit/s in upload
When is my accommodation in turn?
Why do you also have to build during examination times?
Why are there no exact dates for entering the room, but only a period?
Several companies involved in the construction have to be coordinated. In addition, depending on the structural conditions on site, construction progress can proceed faster or slower, so that the construction period per building can unfortu-nately not be more precisely scheduled. We always provide information about the current status by posting it in the accommodation.
How long is the internet not available during the renovation?
In most accommodations in which a completely new cable infrastructure is installed, there will only be a brief interruption in the internet supply. In the accommodations, where the existing cabling continues to be used, a failure of the internet during the renewal of the network sockets and the network distributors cannot be avoided. We try to keep the downtime as short as possible. We will inform you of the exact time in good time before the start of construction work in your accommodation.
What about my private internet connection?
