On the web pages of the Institute of Mathematics' IT Departments' Teaching Infrastructure Subdivision you can learn everything important about the Unix Pool and its attached units. More than 100 Linux-powered workplaces are at the students' disposal, and are also open for use in lectures which require computational resources as well as online examinations. All devices in and around the Unix Pool area are run with the free and open source operating system GNU/Linux (Debian).
The Unix Pool's regular opening hours are Mon-Fri from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
