Computer and internet access

Computer access

IMS has a computer pool, and most courses will use this pool for practical sessions. In order to participate, you need to fill in all fields that are not pre-filled in our computer account request form so that we can create a guest account. Please fill in the PDF directly (no signature necessary, for now) and send it electronically to the Fall School technical support team.

DEADLINE is August 31st, 2019. If you send in your forms late, computer access may be delayed.

Note also that you will need to present the ID/passport that you specify in the form when you arrive at IMS for the account to be activated.

Internet access

IMS has eduroam wireless, so if you already have an eduroam account, you can directly access the internet through your laptop or phone. If you do not, please explicitly request eduroam access in the e-mail with the computer access form and make sure that the form contains your name and email address.

University canteen and cafeteria chip cards

We can provide you with chip cards for buying meals at a reduced price (10% reduction) – valid only for external students.

You can get the chip cards at the registration desks (deposit: 10 Euros). Remember to return them in the Organizing Secretariat at the end of your stay.

The chip cards can be loaded
