There will be no office hours during the holidays starting from december 10th. The next one will be on the 11th of January or after a hard lockdown ends.

If you experience any problems, our ticket system and our email support at are of course still available. To compensate the cancelled office hours we've set up a support hotline (0351 89670993). We try to be reachable at the best possible rate during the times of our office hours (Monday and Thursday, 7pm to 8pm).

We wish you a merry Christmas, a happy new Year and stay healthy!

Update: On December 24th, we won't be able to offer hotline support.

Update: Our offices will remain closed until at least the end of April. We're available via mail and telephone.

Integration of the St.-Petersburger-Straße dormitories into the AG DSN network


Written by Jakob Müller, 2021-04-11. Permalink

On Saturday (2021-04-10) the dormitories St.-Petersburger-Straße 21/25/29 were fully integrated into the network of the AG DSN. We warmly welcome all residents and hope that we could further improve the quality of the network.

Those who have already had network access through the Studentenwerk in the past will continue to receive it free of charge. New tenants must become a member to get network access.

Experience has shown that minor problems occur when migrating approximately 500 residents to our system. If your connection does not work as expected, please contact our support team. We will be happy to help you!
