Free web services are practical, without question.
But why wander far away when good things are so close at hand? – It works even without Doodle, GoogleDocs, Skype & Co.
The Gauss IT Centre offers many free services for members and relatives of the TU Braunschweig – and that includes free support for the services offered by the GITZ. Some of the services are offered via the German Research Network (DFN).
You can find a complete overview of the services offered by the Gauss IT Centre in our services catalog.
