HIS and Student Portal

The abbreviation HIS stands for Hochschul-Informations-System (University Information System). It is a university portal for students, prospective students, lecturers and staff.

You will find the following certificates in the student portal:

  • Your current Leporello (online only from the winter semester 2022/23 on!).
  • A certificate according to §9 BAföG for your BAföG application
  • A current certificate of study

You can also change your contact details in the student portal.

You can register for exams and view your grades via the HIS portal.

Self-service HIS
Please ensure that we have your current address as the HIS access data will be sent by post. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that students are personally responsible for providing correct address data in accordance with the enrolment regulations. Students will be held responsible for the consequences of incorrect addresses.

If you have forgotten your password, you will be issued with a new one for a fee.

Please pay attention to the dates for exam inspections, as this also determines the most important deadline for objections.

If you have any technical problems, please contact Mr. Wael Saegh.

Please also note the information regarding approved withdrawals (e.g. medical certificates).


Due to a bug in the HIS database, you may receive an error message after you change your password, stating that the old (Default) password does not match. Please ignore this message and just logout. Then log back in with your old, assigned password again.

If further errors occur, contrary to expectations, please personally contact the Student Counselling Office to go through the procedure together with her.
