The University Computer Centre provides computer workstations for blind and visually impaired persons in a central compute pool. Special instructions must be observed for use, which we present here.

The special workstations in room S 013 are available to all blind and visually impaired students and staff of the University of Leipzig. Access to the computer pool is only permitted with access authorisation, a valid student or service ID and after instruction and briefing by Martina Koch. Ms Koch can be contacted by e-mail at or by telephone on +49 341 97-33331.
