As a protection against computer viruses, worms and trojans, the University Computer Center provides the virus protection software Sophos Anti-Virus free of charge (as part of a campus license).

Sophos Anti-Virus is automatically installed in all PC rooms, lecture halls and seminar rooms, as well as on other PCs maintained by the University Computer Center. In addition, members of the Philipps-Universität Marburg can download Sophos Anti-Virus free of charge and also install it on their IT workstations at home.


  • Current versions of Microsoft Windows already include working antivirus protection. Otherwise, installation of an anti-virus program is strongly recommended.
  • If computers are infected by viruses or other malware, the University Computer Center is obliged to block the infected devices' access to the university network and Internet!
