Rebranding: University Computing Center Becomes University IT

The Computing Center will from now on present itself under its new name, University IT

The University Computing Center will from now on present itself under its new name, University IT. The term “computing center” primarily refers to buildings used to house technology and run IT infrastructure. With our extensive range of services, however, we offer much more than that. As your reliable partner for IT and everything digital at the University of Mannheim, we react swiftly and flexibly to your demands. What is more, we propose new ideas for digital processes and implement these according to your individual requirements. Our goal is to become one of the most modern and customer-oriented IT service providers among Germany’s higher education institutions. As our former name, University Computing Center, no longer does this profile justice, we have decided to rebrand ourselves “University IT”. All employees working for the University IT as well as a select number of other university staff were involved in the process of finding a new name. It was officially passed by the President's Office and the Senate in June 2019.

As before, you can turn to our support team with any IT issues you might have by calling our hotline +49 621 181-2000 or sending an e-mail to To contact the secretary’s office, please send your e-mail to To make sure that no e-mails get lost, we will still be available under our former e-mail addresses for a limited period of time.

With the overall website relaunch of the University of Mannheim, we have also redesigned our own web pages under While the new pages containing information on IT services for students are already online, all other contents are currently being completely revised and will be published in the new design in the course of the year. These pages also already bear our new name.
