Notify of a Change of Address
Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) notifies its students of many important matters by letter. Students are therefore obliged to inform the Registrar’s Office of their current address.
You can change your address quickly and easily via eCampus or notify the Registrar’s Office by email or via the contact form (stating your matriculation number).
Keep the Departments up to Date
Your current address should also be available to the secretariats and examination offices in your departments (and, if applicable, to the Elective Courses for Bachelor Students department or the Professional School of Education). They keep their own student files and mailing lists, which they use to send out important information, such as exam dates.
Notify of a Name Change
It is essential that you inform the Registrar’s Office as well as the secretariats and examination offices in your departments in good time of any change of name – for example due to marriage – otherwise important documents and records of achievement will be issued in the wrong name.
Change of First Name and/or Gender Entry
If you have had your first name and/or gender entry changed, please also notify the Registrar’s Office so that this information can be updated in RUB documents.
The form we provide is unfortunately not sufficient on its own in case of a change of gender entry (possibly combined with a change of name).
The application must be submitted either with a “dgti Ergänzungsausweis” (i.e. supplementary identity card) (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Transidentität und Intersexualität) plus a valid ID card or with a legally binding decision of the local court.
