The Internet access in the WIST residences is via the vc-graz (virtual campus). The vc-graz is run by the ZID (central IT service of the Graz University of Technology) and many student residences. As a participant, you must stick to the usage rules. There is a data volume limit of 50 GB per month. If you use 80% of the volume, you will be notified by email. If you exceed the limit, your access will be blocked for the rest of the month. The access data is sent out by the administration via email. On the vc-admin page, you can manage your own account and view information.
