What you need to know for booking

This is how it works

  • You register with your UDE identification (= Unikennung).
  • Book at least three hours in advance and a maximum of two weeks in the future.
  • You can book a maximum of three hours per day and two appointments per week.
  • You will automatically receive an email confirming your appointment.
  • For this purpose, your email address is read from the local authentication system of the UDE.
  • In the booking system, the booked period is marked as "Reserved".

Data protection notice

Your UDE identification (= Unikennung) is transmitted to us and stored. We also save the date and time of the entry. To confirm the room booking, the mail address linked to your UDE identifier is read from the local LDAP directory. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the registration and is deleted after 7 days.
