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 university teaching with media technology, a teaching/learning platform, a web conferencing system, e-exams and other consulting services in collaboration with the Zukunftswerkstatt and University Didactics.

We support research with servers for scientific projects and a powerful compute and storage cluster. As part of the eresearch service center we support researchers in digitalisation of research results and processes with collaborative version management and research data repositories.

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.
