SoFS-Storage for Institutions

Accredited institutions of the University of Cologne can use storage-space in SoFS. One storage-area can be established per service identity number (Dienststellenkennziffer). Storage area capacities are free up to 1 TB.

Attention: The RRZK works currently on the reorganization of the system of DKZs on cost centres. Until this conversion is completed, please use your old DKZ or cost centre. If you have none of them, please send an e-mail to SoFSMgr.

Application and Managment of Areas

The project areas are managed by the respective institutions.

Application of a area in SoFS

Subdirectories can be established for single projects. They function like network drives under Windows. A document which is stored there, does not burden the SoFS-quota of your own account, only the quota of the institution- area.


Für die Rechtswissenschaftliche Fakultät existiert bereits ein Bereich im SoFS. Sie berät und unterstützt die IT-Abteilung des Dekanats: jura-it(at)
