University IT and Data Center

The University IT and Data Center (Hochschulrechenzentrum, HRZ) is the central IT service provider of the University of Bonn

Girls'Day 2024 - we're taking part!

Girls'Day is back on April 25, 2024 and we at the University IT and Data Center are taking part!

We are pleased that we can once again offer an exciting range of activities and an interesting program for Girls'Day - Girls' Future Day - the nationwide orientation day for career and study orientation for girls from 8th to 10th grade.

The aim is for the girls to get to know professions and study subjects on this day in which the proportion of women is below 40%. Like so many IT departments, the University IT and Data Center is clearly male-dominated. That should change! 

Start of registration for IT courses in summer term 2024

The lecturers of the HRZ are looking forward to your registrations for the following IT courses via eCampus from April 15, 2024.

  • Table processing

MS Excel I - Basics - 15.05. - 17.05.2024, 09:00 - 12:00

  • Graphics editing

Image editing with GIMP - 08.05. - 22.05.2024, 13:00 - 16:00 

Access from unauthorised e-mail clients blocked

As last announced in the message dated 20 March 2024, the ability to retrieve emails using certain email clients was blocked today.

If you use one of the following e-mail programmes to retrieve your university e-mails, this is no longer possible with immediate effect:

What to do now?

Should you use one of the applications mentioned above, please change immediately (as mentioned in the news from March 20, 2024) to another product and change your Uni-ID password afterwards.

The HRZ will block the retrieval through cloud based E-Mail programmes from the 30.03.2024 by enforcing appropriate technical measures. This means that afterwards you will not be able to receive or send e-mails through the aforementioned applications.

Security risks also with cloud-backup

Please note that backup applications from Google and Apple are also categorised as highly problematic and must not be used, when they lead to outflow of university data (incl. login-data) to external cloud storages.

Transcription service for accessible video teaching material

To create accessible video teaching material, the eCampus team offers a transcription service. Teachers of the University of Bonn can order the subtitling of their teaching material via the contact form in Confluence (only accessible in BONNET/ via VPN). The provision and all further details are clarified after consultation with the eCampus team.
