Below you will find important information on how to use our services.

  • Information for lecturers

    To use the pool for a course, a room request via Portal² is required. Access to the pool room is via the lecturer's ecUM. See the information under “Room equipment (incl. Room booking)”.

    In order to use the PC at the lecturer's desk, the media cabinet at the desk must be unlocked. This requires the same media cabinet key as in the lecture halls and seminar rooms. If required, this can also be borrowed from the gate for the duration of the course.

    The existing adhesive strip can be attached to the door to open the door permanently during the course. Please ensure that the adhesive strip for opening the door is removed when you leave the pool room so that the pool room is locked again.

  • Print account and payment

    Deposits to the print account

    Deposits to the BWL.POOL print account are made through the pool supervisor with ecUM credit. Autoload participants can charge ecUM credit at the charging machine on the ground floor (PIN required!).

    Attention: The BWL.POOL print account CANNOT be charged at the ecUM terminal!

  • Headphones/Headsets

    All PCs have the option of connecting headphones or headsets.

    Headphones can be borrowed from the supervisor against the deposit of the ecUM.
