LPIS is WU’s course registration system. In order to log in, you need your student ID number (without the “h”) and a password. You should have received a nomination letter from your exchange coordinator at your home university containing this information. If you have not received the nomination letter, please contact your coordinator at WU immediately.
For more information about course registration, please refer to our info page and to our FAQs.
Course planner tool
To help you plan your semester in detail, we recommend the LV-Planer online course planning tool provided by the Austrian Student’s Union at WU (ÖH WU).
Since attendance is mandatory in all classes, you need to make sure that your courses do not overlap. This application allows you to view various course combinations in an online calendar. You can use it to check your semester schedule for possible conflicts and to compare alternative combinations of courses. The application is not connected to your course registration – you still have to register via LPIS!
Since this tool is not directly offered by WU, your WU login data will not work. Please create an account.
You can use Wi-Fi on your notebook or on your smartphone throughout the entire WU campus. You can find your individual Wi-Fi password on your nomination letter. Public surfstations and PC labs offer internet access as well. However, you have to log in with your login data first.
You can find information on how to use the campus Wi-Fi here.
We recommend that you use WU’s email service for communicating with lecturers and the International Office. Please make sure to check your account regularly.
You can login at webapp.wu.ac.at using your email address (h+student ID firstname.lastname@example.org) and your password.
Fellow students can send you emails using h+your student ID email@example.com.
You can find more information about our webmail service and instructions on how to link your WU mailbox to your smartphone or desktop client here.
Please ALWAYS indicate your WU student ID number when contacting lecturers or International Office staff!
LEARN is WU’s learning and information portal for students. It helps you to organize your studies and facilitates direct exchange with fellow students and teachers.
On this platform, you will find details on the courses you are registered for, including the syllabi, course materials, assignments, etc., and you may also have to upload homework on LEARN. Many lecturers share news and updates on their courses via this platform.
We strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the platform before the semester starts. You can find a step-by-step overview in the MyLEARN Guide.
The Controlpanel application allows you to check and modify a variety of settings related to your WU student account, like changing your WU password or your Wi-Fi password.
