"The small print"Einklappen

This offer is not intended to compete with commercial providers. Therefore, only devices which are exclusively or for the most part used by a student of the University of Bayreuth can be processed. The employees of the IT Service Center decide individually for each problem whether processing is possible or sensible. The service catalog is only intended as a rough overview. The employees only offer personal advice on site and acceptance of cases during the opening hours of the PC garage - telephone support is not possible. The IT Service Center cannot guarantee success and cannot be held liable for any loss of data or damage. Necessary spare parts are only recommended, the students themselves are responsible for procurement. Employees cannot create appraisals either.


Event support

Your IT Service Center will be happy to support you at conferences and events.

We'll take care of them:

  • provision of internet access,
  • use of the university multimedia infrastructure,
  • loan of multimedia equipment and instruction in its use.

Please contact us as early as possible at tagungen@uni-bayreuth.de. Our form additionally supports you in planning and requesting media technology for your event.

Note:Dependent on the size and duration of your event, we recommend to the event management the provision of assistants, whom we would be happy to instruct for you!
