After matriculation, you will receive your account credentials for the University computer network and your university e-mail account information by post.
Your username will stay with you until you complete or withdraw from the degree programme. You will need it to apply for your student ID card, various IT services such as computer and network access and to register for modules (using Stud.IP) and examinations (using HISQIS). Furthermore, you will use your account credentials to apply for your student ID card (CampusCard) via the card portal in Stud.IP.
For more information and to access the individual systems, visit the login page of the Centre for Information Technology and Media Services (ZIM).
Please monitor your University e-mail account regularly, as all important correspondence from the Student Registration Office will be sent there.
