Teaching labs are primarily intended for courses, practice labs for individual work. Please consider that using the PC labs for teaching always has priority over using them for free practice.

The workstation rooms of the Department of Information Systems & Operations are not managed by IT-SERVICES. The equipment and software availability is different from what is described here.

Printing Account

A printing account is automatically created with the setup of a WU account. In order to use the printers in the PC labs, you must have a positive account balance. The costs for printouts are currently:

  • 1 page black and white € 0.14

  • 1 page color printing on paper € 0.36


If necessary, the printing account can be recharged at the IT Support Center (LC building, Level 1). For recharging your printing account, you need your student ID number (no other identification).

Payments to students can only be made in person by showing your student ID card or another photo ID.

Reservation of PC Labs

PC labs can be reserved for events that are not registered in the course catalog (VVZ) because they were applied for in the course of the semester. In this case, please use the Room Booking System ROOMS (also see ROOMS Booking Guidelines issued by the Teaching Coordination). Your reservation will be processed by IT-SERVICES and you will be informed by email about the further procedure.

If regular courses (i.e. courses that are registered in the course catalog) do not take place in the PC labs (e.g. due to postponements), please cancel the booking in ROOMS. Then these PC labs can be booked for other events.
