Media services and E-Learning

The HRZ of the TU Darmstadt is the central contact point for the use of electronic media in lectures. We are responsible for the provision, installation and service of media technology in event rooms at the TU Darmstadt. For lecturers and students, we offer modern media technology equipment in various areas, which is indispensable in everyday university life.

Media technology in lecture halls and seminar rooms

The central lecture halls and seminar rooms of the TU Darmstadt are equipped with functional and modern media technology. In the lecture halls, the equipment with permanently installed media equipment covers almost the entire area; media technology is also available in some central and many decentralised seminar rooms.

Media equipment rental

The HRZ Service offers at its locations Stadtmitte and Lichtwiese the rental of various media equipment for the TU Darmstadt. If a subject area guarantees this, it is also possible to lend to student groups in the form of seminars, exercises and projects.


Users from the TU Darmstadt can easily participate in web video conferences of scientific institutions or start their own conferences.

Digital Signage

On the info displays you can visually display news about the TU, your department or your institution. The information can be exchanged effortlessly at any time and can thus easily be kept up to date.


The HRZ operates webcams for the external presentation of the TU Darmstadt, whose images are freely accessible on the TU Darmstadt website and are published worldwide. The HRZ is responsible for the planning, setup and operation of the webcams.

Printing and scanning
Printers are located at the printing centre at Stadtmitte and at the PC pools of HRZ. There you can print in different paper formats from DIN A4 to DIN A0 in black/white and colour.

E-learning Platforms

To support e-learning at TU Darmstadt, the University's IT-Service and its Computing Centre (HRZ) cooperate with the Centre for Educational Development (HDA). Together they operate the internal learning platform Moodle, the online platform OpenLearnWare, for free access to study materials, and also the e-portfolio system Mahara.
