Computer Centre

The Computer Centre is the university's IT department. This is where you can find information about your user ID, Wi-Fi access, Microsoft Office access, computer labs on campus and access to printing facilities for students.

You need a user account to access all university IT services. You can find you log-in details for the university IT system in the ICMS portal.

Your log-in details will also provide you with an official email address for all university communications. You do not need to install SOGo, our webmail system.

Student ID card

Your university ID is not just a photo ID card. It can also be used to make cashless payments on campus (e.g. canteen, photocopying and printing services), it is your library card, your semester ticket travel pass (except for distance learning students) and it entitles you to enter university buildings.

You apply for your student ID card when you enrol at the university and can collect your card from Student Services. If you lose your student ID, please contact our student services team.

Student Services

Student Services is your contact point for re-enrolment, requesting leave of absence, de-registration, transferring to a different degree programme, information about important dates and deadlines, as well as all the relevant forms you need to complete.

Every semester, you will receive an email from our student services team via your university email address with a request to re-enrol and pay your enrolment fee for the semester.


The kompetentdurchsstudium team will support you in overcoming personal challenges in the new digital world of higher education and help you to develop key skills for your future career.

Our OpenOlat course, #kompetentdurchsstudium, enables you to access many semesterFIT courses free of charge. We offer a range of online courses focusing on key competences and also provide additional digital support through our blog, information for new students and our extensive self-study resources.


You can access a huge range of books and journals for your studies in the libraries at each of our three campuses. Our library collections include both printed and electronic resources. If the publication you need is not available in the university libraries, you can order books through the German interlibrary loan system.

You need to register with the library using your student ID card and a valid identity card before you can borrow items for the first time. You can also register online.
