Cable Connections to the Data Network
On the City and Irchel campuses and at various UZH external sites there are public zones and workspaces with network sockets for your mobile devices.
Public Spaces with WiFi Connections
In many public spaces at UZH you can also use our wireless network.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
Authentication isn't the same thing as encryption. Even though you authenticate yourself with a password to use a public network, data traffic is unencrypted. Using a UZH VPN connection makes sure that any data sent via public networks is encrypted, giving you secure access to the UZH network even when you're off the premises, just as if you were sitting in the UZH building with a direct connection to the UZH network.
