Important information:

Unfortunately, the student mailing list will no longer be used for LZI mails in the future. However, almost 90% of the surveyed participants of LZI events became aware of our offers through emails in the past. Therefore, we would like to maintain the possibility to reach you by email. We therefore ask you to subscribe to the newly established LZI mailing list.


LZI-Mailing List

The LZI mailing list is used by the Learning Center for Computer Science to distribute important news, event notices, etc. related to computer science studies at the University of Paderborn. Only the management of the Learning Center and associated SHKs/WHBs will post to this list. To be added to this mailing list, you can easily register yourself. Please follow the following link and fill out the prepared form: Here you can subscribe.


Study centre computer science (LZI)

The study centre for computer science helps improving study conditions by being part of the program “Heterogenität als Chance” (“Heterogeneity as an opportunity”) within the quality pact for teaching.

It offers a place for collective and individual learning for all students in computer science at the university Paderborn.

For questions concerning computer science studies or learning- and working methods staff will be available at certain times.

It is also possible to arrange personal appointments for individual problems!
