The University IT Services offers computer labs that are open to all University members, available for personal use as well as for University courses.
On the ground level of the University IT Services you will find four computer labs, each with 12-15 computer stations as well as two more labs. These rooms are open to all University members during the regular opening hours, from 9 am- 10 pm. However, any courses taking place in these labs have priority. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to the course schedule, posted on the entrance door. Kindly leave any computer lab if asked to do so by the course director.
Other computer labs are located in the University IT Services branch office in the University Library 2 (Rempartstraße 16, Ground Floor)
- Hardware equipment of the computer labs
- Software equipment for standard images of the University IT Services Computer labs
Note: More computer labs can be found in other University Institutions (including Faculties, Institutes, etc.) as well as in the University Library. These computer labs do not operate under the same conditions as the University IT Services, please clarify this at the individual locations. The software configuration is usually different from that of the University IT Services, and the computers in these labs often have software specific to that subject.
Flexible Multimedia Learning Environments
The computer labs located in the University IT Services ground floor and in the seminar room in the University Library Building 2 are equipped with a flexible working environment that allows both for the classic Linux-Desktop-Operation (GNOME or KDE) and for the Windows-Operation (Windows XP). Contrary to habit, the operating systems are not installed in the individual computers, which reduces the maintenance required as well as widens the range of courses available. The Open-Source-Software used for these purposes has been developed by the Lehrstuhl for Communication Systems along with a unique team of WiHis.
Internal and external University lecturers can personally put together the necessary software and course content quite easily: you can prepare all necessary software installments and default settings in a virtual setting regardless of time or location. Either Mr. Minnich (Tel. 203-4617) or his assistants will gladly give a short introduction to the procedure. Please find further information in the Wiki.
