The university computing centre offers you with the service „Messaging“an XMPP based global messaging service under the use of the software “ejabberd”.

Because the use of central messengers hosted abroad is not available in the official area due to data security reasons, we offer the use of a free and federated messenger system.


The communication in the XMPP-network is working via a so-called Jabber-ID, which has a similar form to an e-mail address. This Jabber-ID is provided for all members and relatives of the university and has to be typed in in the corresponding app. The form of the Jabber-ID at the Jade University is

<your username>

PC-Network System

If you work on a PC within the PC-Network System, you can have a view on the required software in the software menu of the computing centre. You will receive comfortable access to the XMPP-network.

  • computing centre software menu / communication / Gajim
  • username: standard log-in (form: ma1150)
  • password: <your password>


Within the XMPP-network, you will need an app to send a message. Contrary to other messenger systems, you can choose between different apps:

Data Security

In order to use the XMPP-network, personal data - such as e.g. a telephone number or an e-mail address - are not necessary. The usual encryption of the message leads to the uselessness of the content by the provider. Also, the providers are spread on the internet and cannot access the data centrally. Only so-called traffic-data will accrue.
