To be able to use the services of the Central IT Service, you need a user account for authentication purposes. You receive this at the start of your studies or employment.
Together with your user account you get a size of 2 GB for your homedrive, 500 MB for your roaming profile and currently 200 MB for your mailbox.
Please, note that your data at the homedrive are not backed up.
The user is personally responsible for a back up of his data.
For an account to be issued, you must agree to the Guidelines for Use .
The user account allows you access ...
- to the student portal (Primuss)
- to the webmail system
- to the university's PCs (Internet use for research purposes, PC pools, labs, library)
- to the Moodle learning platform
- to the university's WLAN
- to any systems of the various faculties
Before log-in (Initialpassword)
When the user account is created, a randomly generated password is assigned. This password must be changed to a password of your choice the first time you log in to our webmail system or on a computer on the campus.
You cannot use the services without changing the password!
It should be in your own interests to choose a sufficiently complex password to avoid any misuse by third parties.
Changing the password
The password can be changed at any time in the webmail system under "Options" or on all the university's PCs, after logging on to these, by pressing the key combination "CTRL + ALT + DEL".
Forgotten your password?
If you have forgotten the password, this can be reset by an employee of the Central IT Service at the service point upon presentation of your university ID card or your personal ID card. The reset password must then be changed to a personal password again.
