Organizational Information

IT partners are our contact partners if we want to disseminate dv technical information (products, licenses, other information) more widely or if specific questions or problems (e.g. hacker attacks, network problems) need to be clarified.

Each department or institute can nominate an IT partner. An IT partner can be jointly responsible for several areas if they cooperate in IT technology.

The nomination can be made informally by e-mail. Please send messages to the Service Desk.

Only permanent employees can be nominated, since it can also be about questions that may require a quick and direct decision or technical system interventions that may affect the ability of the department or institute to work.

Please remember to inform us when a person leaves and to name the successor in good time!

In addition, IT officers act as official spokespersons for the departments' and faculties' I&C needs as well as for central institutions of the University and other Dortmund research institutions.

Mailing list

IT partners normally receive various types of information by post and by e-mail (via a mailing list).

The mailing list is a moderated list, i.e. only registered participants can send e-mails via the list. Therefore, please include the e-mail address of the new IT partner with the name. Self-registrations are possible, but are only actively entered in the list if the list administrator confirms the registration.

In addition to the IT partner, other persons are only included in the list if this has been confirmed beforehand by the IT partner or the head of the institution.

Location & approach

The easiest way to reach the main building of the ITMC is via the freeway A45 from the exit "Dortmund-Eichlinghofen". Turn right there onto Universitätsstraße. At the next set of traffic lights, continue straight ahead and turn left at the next junction onto Hauert Straße. At the first traffic light turn right onto Otto-Hahn-Straße. After about 300 m you will reach the ITMC building (on the left side of the street). The parking spaces on the parking lanes along the street are mostly occupied. A smaller - mostly also occupied - parking lot is located on Joseph-von-Fraunhofer-Straße (entrance 36). A larger parking lot is located about 250 m further on Otto-Hahn-Straße (entrance 30).

From Dortmund main station, take S-Bahn line 1 in the direction of Bochum/Essen to the Dortmund Universität stop (journey time approx. 7 minutes).
From Bochum Hauptbahnhof, take S-Bahn line 1 in the direction of Dortmund to the Dortmund Universität stop (journey time approx. 15 minutes).

You can reach the building on foot in about 15 minutes from the S-Bahn station. Walk up the wide staircase of the S-Bahn station. Turn left along the university library, cross the Mensa bridge and continue straight ahead. At Martin-Schmeißer-Platz turn left until you reach Otto-Hahn-Straße. There, keep to the right and continue along Otto-Hahn-Straße until you reach house number 12.

The easiest way to reach this branch is via the A45 freeway from the "Dortmund-Eichlinghofen" exit. Turn right there onto Universitätsstraße. At the next set of traffic lights, continue straight ahead and turn left at the next junction onto Hauert Straße. At the second set of traffic lights, turn right onto Emil-Figge-Straße. Continue on this street until you reach the next crossing with traffic lights. There you will find the parking spaces closest to the building. You will reach the smaller one (entrance 21) if you turn right into Vogelpothsweg. If you want to use the large parking lot (entrance 18), continue straight ahead on Emil-Figge-Straße.

From Dortmund main station, take S-Bahn line 1 in the direction of Bochum/Essen to the Dortmund Universität stop (journey time approx. 7 minutes).
From Bochum Hauptbahnhof, take S-Bahn line 1 in the direction of Dortmund to the Dortmund Universität stop (journey time approx. 15 minutes).

You can reach the building on foot in about 1 minute from the S-Bahn station. Walk up the wide staircase of the S-Bahn station. Just in front of you is the large building Emil-Figge-Straße 50. Use the footpath that leads straight towards it in the direction of the stairs.

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
