Error message. Nothing works anymore?

Have you ever woken up in the morning, started to study or work on your PC, but then you got an error message and didn’t know what was going on? We have the solution! Especially for this purpose, we have the status message portal!

All current information about maintenance, (partial) malfunctions and failures of all central IT systems of the IT Center can be found there at a glance. The color code even tells you the current status.

In Addition, notifications are also published in the RWTHApp under “News”.

Never miss an update with the RSS feed

To see the messages within a service, simply click on the relevant service. On the overview page of the status messages, there is also an RSS feed linked to each service, which you can even subscribe to by simply using the top RSS feed. To subscribe, right-click on the link icon and copy the link. A detailed instruction how to subscribe to an RSS feed in Outlook is of course available on our documentation platform IT Center Help.

This is especially recommended for services that you use very often in your daily work or university life. This way, you will not miss anything and will be automatically informed about new status messages via e-mail.


Do you already know our status message portal or is it new to you?
Stay up-to-date and take a look at the status message portal the next time you get an error message 😊.
