You will receive a username and an account password upon entering into office or starting your studies at WU. These login data enable you to make use of various online services at WU. Claims and rights to an account are regulated by the Directive on Account Management.
The Controlpanel application allows you to centrally manage your account. There you can easily change or request password words for instance. WU employees have additional functionalities available in the Controlpanel. Please consider the guidelines and current recommendations for account security at WU.
Use the Controlpanel to
register a cell phone number in order to
request a new account password in case you forgot the current one;
set up account delegation for colleagues (internal) and
grant access rights, e.g. in SharePoint (internal)
For further questions about your passwords or related topics, please contact the IT Support Center, we are happy to help.
Please mind that requested passwords cannot be handed out via telephone. Account security is an essential part of our IT security strategy.
WU employees can find further information on the intranet pages of IT-SERVICES.
How long is my account active?
You can check the validity of your account in the Controlpanel.
Students are entitled to an account as long as they are studying at the WU. Therefore, a timely re-registration is required.
Accounts of WU employees who are registered in SAP are automatically extended. All other accounts can be extended by the superior. However, the superior must confirm that the account is still indispensable for WU related work.
If your eligibility for an account expires, the account will be closed.
All users are notified by email before their account expires in order to guarantee enough time to back up their data.
WU employees can, if necessary, arrange the extension of the account with their superior.
Can my account be extended?
For students: your account is automatically extended with valid re-registration.
For questions about your account, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
How do I get login data?
Upon entering into office or starting your studies at WU, you will receive your login data (i.e.: username and account password) in the form of an account datasheet. You can request the account datasheet at any time by showing a valid photo ID at the IT Support Center.
For students the account is set up automatically at their first admission at WU.
New or external employees can be activated by their superiors via the Controlpanel if they were recorded by the Personnel Office (in SAP).
Where can I see my re-registration status?
Your current re-registration status can be found on the following website:
If you have already paid your tuition fee for the current semester and do not appear as having re-registered, we recommend contacting the Study Service Center as soon as possible.
