Online at American Studies Leipzig - ASL Brings Wireless LAN to GWZ' 5th Floor

As of this semester, American Studies Leipzig is offering Wireless Lan Access to students in the seminar and conference room, and in the vicinity on the fifth floor of the GWZ (Beethovenstr. 15). The Wireless Lan technical infrastructure and bandwith is provided by the Rechenzentrum of the university and works through the same authentication mechanism the University Library (and the New Campus) offers.

Enjoy!

Short Homepage Outages Today, Thu Oct 9, 11-14 hrs

Due to technical problems the University Rechenzentrum had during unusually high load peaks during the Wahlbereich selection, the American Studies Leipzig homepage has been periodically unavailable for time spans of a few minutes each, starting at 11am this morning. While the reasons for these problems lie outside the institute, we do apologize for the inconvenience caused by these malfunctions.
