As part of the consolidation and improvement of our internal systems the email service and the user hosting infrastructure for members at Hochschulstraße will be migrated to the new infrastructure till 2018-08-29.

In the meantime the old and the new system will be available in parallel. After the deadline the old system will be shut down!

More information on what is going to change for you personally, e.g. what your new login is and what settings need to be adjusted in your email client, will be send to you by email. You can also find it on our website.

Currently we have detected an outage of our switch in the 5th floor of Borsbergstraße 34. This is causing network problems in this building. We are already working on this issue and are close to fixing it.

Update: The switch was replaced, so the network problems should be resolved.

English translation of forms

All members

Written by Vincent Knyrim, 2018-07-04. Permalink

Due to the new European General Data Protection Regulation we had to split up and revise our forms. Up to this point the new versions of the membership application, services form and moving notification were only available in German.

Now the services form and moving notification are available in English, too, so you do not have to use the German version anymore.

Since the membership application form is basically the written contract between our members and the AG DSN, we want its translation to be legally verified before deploying it. Thus, you can not use it to apply for membership at the moment. However, to make filling in the German version easier for you, we added the current English translation as a reference to our help sheet (on page 2): universallyfor Gerokstraßefor Hochschulstraße

If you should find any mistranslations, please let us know!

Fiber link to Gerokstraße


Written by Sebastian Trebbin, 2018-06-25. Permalink

Due to the expansion of the Studentenwerk owned fiber network, we could connect the dormitory Gerokstraße 38 over fiber to our core network. With this change we increased the uplink bandwidth to 10 Gbit/s, so also the members in Gerokstraße can use the full speed concurrently.

Confirmation of new constitution

All members

During the last general assembly we changed our constitution. On the 17th of May the Students' Council of TU Dresden accepted our changes, the minutes of that meeting will get linked here as soon as they are published.

The main changes were the removal of an inactive rule regarding voting remotely via telecommunication, and we removed the strict limit on our activities to the area of Dresden, so that we can now help the students in Tharandt and beyond as well.

Lightning Strike Neuberinstraße


Written by Felix Kluge, 2018-06-11. Permalink

Due to a lightning strike on 10th of june 2018 our network equipment at Neuberinstraße got heavily damaged. We try to replace all affected devices as soon as possible. Sadly the devices have to be replaced before a network connection is possible again.

Update 2018-06-18: Over the last week we replaced the affected hardware, since Saturday your connections are reenabled. Please make sure to use the updated settings! IP-addresses have to be acquired dynamically via DHCP, the old static configurations do not work anymore.
