PC workstations in Pool 1 (teaching pool) for training courses (Neues Augusteum)
The University Computer Centre provides PC workstations in central PC pools. Some of these are separately designated as teaching pools, which are primarily reserved for teaching courses. The PC workstations are also equipped with special learning software and the rooms with interactive smartboards. Teaching pools are primarily reserved for courses and are therefore not always available. To reserve a course, please use our web form.

The PC workstations are additionally equipped with special learning software and the rooms with interactive smartboards. Teaching pools are primarily reserved for courses and are therefore not always available.
Research data archiving
As part of good scientific practice at the University of Leipzig, it is essential for research projects to ensure secure and sustainable archiving of the research data produced. The Research Data Archiving service at the URZ directly supports research projects in their efforts to conduct good research by providing the option of permanently archiving research data in the connected long-term repository OpARA. Here, research data can be published, archived and re-used.
Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi "eduroam")
Within the university, network access via Wi-Fi is possible at various locations or areas via the eduroam network, so that good Wi-Fi coverage can be offered. eduroam® also provides free access to thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide.
Access to the data network (LAN)
Within the University, workstations (PCs and notebooks) can also be connected directly to the university network via LAN cable. This enables fast access to network services such as mailing or internet.
Ad-hoc surveys with ARSnova
By using mobile devices (laptops, smartphones), ARSnova can be used as a voting tool in seminars, lectures or other events. You want to know whether the auditorium can follow your lecture? Use the feedback function of arsnova.voting. In this way, the interactivity between speaker and audience can be increased and events can be made more varied.
Data Science with RStudio
RStudio offers a comprehensive integrated development environment for the programming language R for statistical calculations. The service allows access to our hardware resources and use of the extensive library of software.
High Performance Computing (HPC)
The “High Performance Computing” service offers researchers at Leipzig University and their cooperation partners competent and problem-related advice for the implementation of complex scientific calculations that exceed local computing capacities. As part of the service, users are supported in carrying out complex scientific calculations (e.g. scientific simulations on protein folding, machine learning methods).
Online evaluation and surveys with LimeSurvey
The browser-based tool enables individual online surveys for e.g. evaluation, opinion research, target group analyses and much more. Users can create and evaluate questionnaires on their own. The survey results can be analysed using SPSS or Excel, among other tools.
Operating system update with the Microsoft Windows Update for computers not administered by the URZ
Operating systems (Windows, MacOS, Linux) must be protected by regularly installing security updates. Members of the University of Leipzig can connect their Windows PC to the update service of the URZ here. The computer centre provides a Microsoft Windows Update, which is a simple way to keep Windows, but also many Microsoft programmes, up to date.
