This is a step-by-step way how to activate your university account at Heidelberg University (as of 12.01.2011).
Some Uni Heidelberg IT web sites are in German only so I try to explain all to my best knowledge. Here you find the page to activate your university account. Put in your Benutzeridentifikation/Uni-ID: (the two letters and three digits on you Student ID card) and the starting password Anfangskennwort: (you should have got this along with your registration at Heidelberg University). The first box neues Kennwort: below is for your new password. You can choose only small letters and numbers for your password! Any order and also lengthy passwords are fine. Re-enter your password in the second box neues Kennwort wiederholen:. You have to tick the box below ich habe die Ordnungen des URZ gelesen und erkenne diese an:. Click on Kennwort setzen and you should get a message that your account is activated.
Then you get your University mail address and you can log in at the university portal to print out your study reports or re-enrol for the next semester.
