Internet Access on Campus

Internet account for students

The IT Services Center (Hochschulrechenzentrum, abbrev. HRZ) of the Philipps-Universität provides every student with an account exempt from charges. The IT Service Center receives the necessary data from the registrar’s office and frames a username for your account that consists of your first name and family name.

Please activate your account on this website!

Your account includes an email address ( We highly recommend you to regularly check the messages sent to this email address since most lecturers and administration staff, e.g. the staff of the International Office, will use this address to send you messages.

Further information on the internet account for students is available in this HRZ Brochure!

Tip: We recommend that you visit one of the following HRZ’s PC pools/computer rooms to set up your account, since IT advisors will be at your disposal in case of problems:
