  • ABSALON Net: is our secure wireless access to the Internet (incl. access to library databases) for particularly employees. You must use your Absalon username and password. A certificate is also needed for installation on the laptop or smart device.
  • ABSALON GuestNet: this wireless network can be used by everyone on Absalon's locations, and does not require special access codes. Employees and students are not recognized as guests, but private computers and smart devices are not serviced by Absalon and are as such recognised as "guest" units.
