Student Residences

Currently, only one residence is still connected to the university's internet connection. In the residence in Infanteriestraße you are not allowed to connect a router to your network connection. Please only connect your PC or laptop. WLAN is not available there, because the residence operator does not offer it.

VPN-access to OTH Amberg-Weiden

VPN is the abbreviation for "Virtual Private Network". This network function is required if you want to access network resources from outside the university that are only accessible from WITHIN the university, i.e. not from the internet. These are, for example, certain web offers of the library or web offers for the internal administration. For this purpose, a so-called VPN connection must be established with the VPN web portal or the Forticlient. Please note that not everything that the Forticlient offers is also available via the VPN web Portal.
