The DSI does not receive support from the UZH operations service, as the premises are self-managed. Therefore, in case of problems, only the DSI managing office can be involved, on weekdays between 8:00 and 17:00.

When conducting workshops or similar, the person organizing the event is responsible for organizing any necessary working aids (pens, notepads, post-its, etc.).


The following WIFI networks are available:

  • uzh - for UZH members
  • eduroam - for university members of other institutions participating in eduroam
  • uzh-guest - for external guests
    Guests can authenticate themselves by means of an SMS code.
    If the WIFI uzh-guest is selected, a pop-up window appears explaining the further steps. Tip: First accept the terms and conditions - only then can the cell phone number be entered.
