PC Pools & Software


You can find the WIFI network eduroam at many places in the city. The Univer­sity of Leipzig is part of a global et of educa­tion insti­tu­tions that provide this service. Use your Univer­sity Login to connect with the network. If you travel to other cities or countries, you can use eduroam as usual there. The Setup can be a bit tricky at the begin­ning because eduroam is built to provide a high level of secur­ity. You can find a helpdesk in the second floor of the Augusteum.

The Universitiys comput­ing centre provides computer working stations in central PC pools. Windows computer as well as very modern iMacs for graph­ic­al applic­a­tions can be used by the students at the ground floor and the second floor in the Augusteum. That is also where the print­ers, scanners and computers with video, image and text editing programs are located. In contrary to the PC pools you don’t need your Univer­sity Login for the working stations at ground floor of our physics depart­ment, but a special login provided by the admin.
