User Services.

When it comes to equipment and support services for PC workstations and standard software, the JKU's Department of User Services is the university's core backbone.


Claus Wohlschlager

Our Service Desk provides personal and comprehensive support services to students, faculty members, researchers, course instructors and administrative staff when it comes to central user administration and/or installing and providing hardware and software. We also offer larger-format printing services and provide any required technical equipment for two IT training rooms.

Employees can contact the Service Desk to rent hardware to temporarily cover any needs for example in regards to laptops.

Contact us in person at our offices located in the Juridicum building, or call us by dialing our campus hotline extension 1111, or send an e-mail to: servicedesk(at) .

The Department of User Services is part of Information Management and is divided into two divisions:

  • Standard PC Workstation
  • Service Desk

If you have any general questions about the department or need information, please do not hesitate to contact our department manager.
