Center of Information and Media Technology (ZIM)

Doctoral students and staff of HHU have access to diverse services offered by the Center of Information and Media Technology (ZIM). Therefore an identity management system is used (IDM). Most of the services are available using the so-called "Uni-Kennung" which is a personal ID (=user name + (initial) password).

Doctoral students will receive their personal ID automatically upon enrolment, staff will get it by a personal letter sent to their institute or department. Guest researchers or Postdoc with their own fellowship can receive a personal ID through the Dean's office in the respected Faculty by handing in the undefinedAntrag auf Uni-Kennung.

The undefinedactivation of the personal ID and the undefinedadministration of the password can be done online.

ZIM services available with the personal ID (websites only in German):

Note: The personal ID can not be used as the login to access the services of the University Library.
