Account

Passwords are only stored encrypted!
If you authenticate yourself, your input will also be encrypted and only the two keys will be compared. This means that we do not know your password and therefore cannot tell you it.

However, we can enter a new password for you!
You have the following options:

Personal

Please contact the computer centre in person (building 9917 / 112) upon presentation of your certificate of enrolment or your official identity card.

Representation (authorized representative)

If you cannot come in person, it is possible to send a representative to whom you must give a power of attorney and a copy of your official identity card as well as your certificate of enrolment. The authorised person must be listed by name and must also be able to identify himself/herself. We will then hand over the password directly in an envelope.
