ICT services

Most of the university's IT services are only available to university members and can therefore only be used within the university network. If you are outside the campus and want to use the IT services, you must first connect to the university network via VPN. To do this, you have to install the VPN client once on your PC / mobile device. Instructions can be found on the data center website.
