The University Computer Center (HRZ) ist the central IT service provider and IT competence center of the Philipps-University Marburg. We offer IT services based on a robust and high-performance IT infrastructure, so students and employees at teaching and research, as well as administration are optimally supported with efficient IT solutions. Of course we give advice on how to use our IT services. An overview about all services we offer can be found at Services.

We support the university education with a teaching/learning platform, E-Exams (electronic exams) and additional advisory service in collaboration with the steering group new media, university didactic and the digLL project (digital teaching and learning in Hesse).

We also host servers for research and scientific projects and operate a high performance computer. As a part of the eresearch service center we assist researchers on inquiry to plan, implement and apply for research projects, the handling of digital research results and digitalisation of research results and processes.

By request we support the departments with the provision and operation of IT workplaces consisting of telephone, PC, other terminals or periphery and software.

We support the University committees (e. g. University Conference, IT-Advisory-Council, Library Council), with IT-know-how in their projects and modernisation of facilities and provide their central IT-Infrastructure, as speach – and datakommunikation or server and data storage. We assist in developing an information security management system to minimize the risks for data and IT systems and the treatment of IT-secutity incidents.
