Basic ICT facilities

Support on installation of basic ICT facilities on your laptop:

  • Wireless access (Eduroam)
  • Wired access (FlexNet and 802.1x)
  • VPN access
  • Webprint

Manuals are provided on the manuals page of this website.

We support the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)
  • Microsoft Windows 7 (Service Pack 1)
  • Microsoft Windows 8, 8.1 (Update 1 and newer)
  • Mac OS X (10.8, 10.9, 10.10)

We’ll try to assist with other OS-es on a best-effort basis.

We’ll gladly assist you with the topics above. The main idea is you try to do it yourself first. We’re available to assist if you have any questions or if something doesn’t work like it’s supposed to.

We can try to help you with hardware problems, but in most cases you need to contact your reseller for support. For TU Delft laptops we can assist you to determine if and which hardware is failing (or whether it might be a software problem), but we refer you to the support channels to have it fixed.

  • Autodesk Revit
  • Autodesk Maya (modeling, texturing, rendering)
