IT Services Group

Main content

The IT Services Group (ISG) in the Physics Department is the central contact point for all concerns revolving around IT.

We manage the central e-mail, file, backup, web, and print servers, together with the computer room for exercises. We're happy to assist with any IT-related questions. The IT coordinator of your institute is responsible for the procurement and coordination of the local IT infrastructure. Additional servers and workstations are managed directly by the institutes. Our website features a blog with announcements and information for our users, an extensive documentation, and links to the online services of the department.
