University-ID (Unikennung) – Your Key to our Online Services
Why do you need a University-ID?
For authentication purposes, you need a valid ID to use the ZIM’s services.
Upon enrollment, all students received a personalized ID and password from the student’s office. (Note: The ID has to be validated via the Selfcare-Portal beforehand). This ID will accompany you over the course of all your studies.
New employees get an ID automatically. Employees that do not have an ID yet, can request one from our user account management via this form [PDF].
There is a personalized e-mail address connected to every University-ID. The university sends important information to this address. To read your e-mails (e.g. via the webmail interface) you need to log in with your ID and password.
You can send files that are too big for mail attachments easily via Gigamove.
