In particular, some services of the University Library (ULB) are only accessible from the university network for licensing reasons. To be able to use these services from home, you need the OpenVPN programme. This establishes a connection between your private internet connection and the university network. You can download the necessary software from this page.

Instructions for installing OpenVPN can be found here.  (ATTENTION: In this case, you must log in with your university ID and password for security reasons).

Webex is a video conferencing service through which digital lectures and seminars are held. You receive access to the respective event via e-mail from the lecturer.
With Webex you can plan a video conference and hold it online.

If you want to invite people to a video conference yourself, you need a licence. You can activate the licence yourself as a staff member and as a student via a registration page. After up to 30 minutes, the account is created. You can then log in to the Webex service at http://hhu.webex.com with your university ID in the form <identifier>@hhu.de and start conferences. Your authentication will take place on HHU systems. You can also return/deactivate your licence via the login page. The Webex account will then be deleted after seven days.

You can find more information about Webex here

HHU also provides a number of common software solutions free of charge or at low cost. These offers are in the software portal (ATTENTION: This page is only accessible from the Uninetz or via VPN!).

MestReNova is a programme that allows electronically provided NMR spectra to be evaluated and processed for presentation in scientific papers.

At Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf there is a MestReNova campus licence for students and staff. Further information and instructions for installation can be found here.

In addition to the chemical drawing programme, the Chem-Office programme package also offers various analytical modules. These can be used to simulate 1H-NMR spectra and 13C-NMR spectra. These simulations can help with the interpretation of spectra. These simulations give a first indication, but should never replace one's own analysis.

A campus licence for ChemDraw Professional 19.1.1 is available at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf.

Further information and instructions for installation can be found here.

OriginPro is a software package for the analysis and presentation of measurement data. It is available free of charge to students and staff of Heinrich Heine University via a campus licence. To use it, you must register on the Asknet software platform.

OriginPro is often seen as a competitor to Micosoft Excel. It is true that the two products complement each other, but there is an intersection of tasks that can be done with both products. You can find out more about this in an introductory video on the media library of the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. In the same video series you will also find introductory videos on how to use Excel.
