About C&CZ

C&CZ is the department of the Faculty of Science that employees and students should contact when they are dealing with IT, specially when this information technology is used for education and/or research.

Help and information

Science loginname and U-number


  • Employees of service departments in 2010 often get a mail/calendar account on the RU Exchange server. The corresponding mail address ends in
  • In 2010 a RU system will be introduced for reading mail and managing calendars. The Science and Exchange mailboxes and calendars will be moved to this new system.

Telephony and phone/mail/address-directories

Phone contact persons, usually the secretary, of Science departments can change entries in the Science phone guide for their department themselves. One can view online the phone and mail guides of the Science faculty, Radboud University and the UMCN St. Radboud.

There is more info on telephony.

PC's and network (including wireless and VPN)

Science departments themselves decide how many and what kind of PC's they need, this often includes C&CZ Managed Windows or Linux PC's.

  • PC rooms and study landscape with Windows PC's as well as Linux workstations.
  • Own laptop, connected to the Internet through the wireless network or with a UTP cable in a network outlet.
  • If on campus a PC lists the B-Fac domain, then one can login with the Science account. Examples are the PC's for all RU-students.
  • Also a PC at home or somewhere else on the Internet can be used. To get access to services to which only PC's of the Science faculty can connect, it might be necessary to use the FNWI VPN-server.

Software, for home use too

The software page contains all info known to us about available software. For all kind of software, Radboud University of the Faculty of Science holds a license contract that makes use of this software free or cheap for employees and/or students, on campus and/or home PC's. Rights of use differ for different software. Most popular is the F-Secure security suite, that can be used freely by employees and students, for home use too. Second place is for Microsoft Windows upgrade and Office, that may be installed/used freely on RU-owned PC's and can be bought cheaply for home use.


C&CZ provides network discs and regularly makes backups of the data. There is a restore procedure to get lost files back. If you save files in other locations, like the hard disc of your own PC, then you are responsible yourself for the backup of these data.

Print, copy scan

The Science print/copy/scan facilities can be used by anyone, for printing one needs a Science login. Scanning is free, the costs of printing are deducted from a printbudget, those of copies from a copy card with a magnetic strip. All information about printing, copying and scanning can be found on the links below:

The current Peage project aims to make printing, copying and scanning uniform on the RU campus, starting with students.

Corporate identity

We have information about the letter layout for the corporate identity.

Corporate systems

Several RU-corporate applications are used by many employees. C&CZ maintains a RU-corporate application webpage with information specific for the Faculty of Science.
