URMZ offers for office at home

Due to the discontinuation of the university's presence, the University Computer and Media Center has converted some services. These include: extended support hours (e-mail and telephone), lending of media technology, support of external locations, collection and application for the thoska and use of software offers.

Extended support hours and services

The URMZ colleagues in support are available in extended support hours between 8 and 16 o'clock by e-mail (rz@uni-erfurt.de) and telephone (+49 361 737-5454). 

The IT support is provided exclusively via remote maintenance (TeamViewer). Our colleagues will also be pleased to assist you in integrating your service device into your home infrastructure (e.g. installation of private printers, etc.) or in the installation of WebDAV on your private computer, installation of MS Office 365, etc.

In addition, it is currently possible to obtain access to URMZ services in advance without applications/forms. Please note that the corresponding applications/forms must be submitted after 19.04.20. Otherwise the right of use will be withdrawn.
