Printing of theses (not dissertations)

You can print and bind theses at kiz. Please note the following instructions for a smooth process:

  • The final thesis must be completely formatted in accordance with the applicable specifications and must be available as a PDF file.
  • Orders must always be submitted online to our order management and billing system. If you do not have a suitable terminal with online access, a PC is available at the Service-Point Print, so that you can place an order with it. In this case, please bring the thesis to be printed on a USB stick. The staff will be happy to help you.
  • Self-printing via the PC pools is not possible. Please understand that we cannot accept orders via e-mail with attachments.
