License Servers

Members of Staff



The license servers provide RWTH institutes with network licenses of software programs such as research tools and applications, programming tools, etc. Network licenses have the advantage of offering flexible conditions of use.

There a two types of license: First, there are licenses pooled by the IT Center; these can be made available for a fee to institutes, staff and students via the RWTH Aachen Online Software Shop. Second, there are licenses purchased by the institutes themselves. We recommend that these licenses are also administered through the IT Center's license servers.

The license servers, which are located in the IT Center office buildings at Seffenter Weg 23 and Wendlingweg 10, have, as far as possible, a redundant design.
