Computer Rooms

The University operates six computer rooms in the building Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1 (OMP1) where the Faculty of Mathematics is located. Of these six rooms the computer rooms PC04 and PC06 are public computer rooms that are always available for students.

The locations of the computer rooms inside the building are as follows:

  • Five computer rooms (PC01 to PC05) are located on the first basement floor on the north side of the building (along the street Berggasse).
  • One computer room (PC06) is located in the library area on the first basement floor on the south side of the building (along the street Türkenstraße).

The computer rooms PC01, PC02, PC03 and PC05 are used for lectures but can also be used by students during free times.

Since these computers are managed by the University, you need your u:account to login!

 

Hardware

Each computer room is equipped with the standard audio/video equipment (e.g. beamer, speakers, ...), one computer for the lecturer (except in PC06) and between 14 and 35 computers for students.

The computers and wide-screen monitors have been bought in August 2013, are state of the art and the same as in all other ZID computer rooms.

 

Software

The computers are installed the same as the computers in the public ZID computer rooms. So please have a look at the Computer Rooms website of the ZID for more information!

Apart from the standard software listed on the ZID website, there is also Mathematica, Matlab and VirtualBox available!

 

Linux

Since the method for installing the computers doesn't yet allow dual-boot installation, the computers are all installed with Windows 7.

However, to cater to the needs of mathematic students there is a pre-installed virtual machine with Linux on each computer. To start this virtual machine, select the "Oracle VirtualBox" software in the Windows start menu and then start the "PC Labor" virtual machine.
