On your matriculation (enrollment) you received a so-called RUB-LoginID. This is a personal identifier (key) for direct access to a number of online services that Ruhr University Bochum offers its students. It starts with the first letters of your last name plus an arbitrary sequence of further letters: Max Mustermann would for example be "mustemf2".
After your matriculation (enrollment), you must set a password for this RUB LoginID by
- clicking on this link
- set a new password via "Wissen Sie Ihr Passwort nicht?" → “Passwort setzen / zurücksetzen” (“set/reset password”)
- Please also read the Informationen & Anleitungen zur 2-Faktor-Authentifizierung ("information & instructions on 2-factor authentication").
Store all information about your RUB LoginID and password in a safe place. You will use the data frequently during your studies.
When you matriculated (enrolled), you received an e-mail address from Ruhr University Bochum. It plays a central role in your studies, as it is used for almost all correspondence with you from lecturers, the Registrar's Office and the examinations office.
It follows the format “First name.Last firstname.lastname@example.org”, e.g. John.Doe@edu.ruhr-uni-bochum.de.
You can access your emails via the RUB eCampus. Please note: The login name for retrieving your mails is your LoginID.
You can use the RUB eCampus to manage and organize your studies online. You use the platform to register for lectures, seminars and exams, create your individual timetable, print your certificate of enrollment and manage your personal data.
Log in with your RUB LoginID and password and, if applicable, your smartphone.
If you have enrolled for an economics degree, an engineering degree or the “Applied Computer Science” degree program, you will use an additional platform called FlexNow to register for exams or to print an overview of your credits.
