Creating Accounts

How do I create accounts using Account Manager?

 

Note

For all new students and staff at the Hochschule Hannover (Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts), a user ID, called a master account, is set up after enrolment/hiring. This is used to assign and manage further user accounts.

The students/employees automatically receive an automated email at the beginning of the semester/the start of their work.

This contains a link to activate the master account, to assign your password for the first time and to activate your university account and to assign a password for this as well.

Information

What does the university account contain?

  • Email address
  • 5 GB memory on the server
  • Access to all public computers
  • Access to the university WiFi network

How long is the university account valid?

Note! The university account will be deactivated two weeks after exmatriculation and thus also the following functions:

  • Email address
  • Access to all public computers
  • Access to the university WiFi network

Attention: Please remember to back up your data in advance.
