Campus Software Contracts

HRZ offers software licenses for your workstation or server.

We have concluded contracts with manufacturers for a large number of software products, so that TU employees benefit from volume discounts. Some of the licenses are also available for students.

To obtain software licenses you are usually charged a fee.
The anti-virus software is free of charge and available to all employees and students at TU Darmstadt.
