On your matriculation (enrolment) you received a so-called RUB-LoginID. This is a personal identifier (key) for direct access to a number of online services that the Ruhr-Universität offers its students.It begins with the first letters of your last name plus an arbitrary sequence of further letters; Max Miustermann would for example be mustemf2.
After your matriculation (enrolment), you must set a password for this RUB LoginID by clicking on this link: Click on “Passwort setzen / zurücksetzen” (“set/reset password”).
Store all information about your RUB LoginID and password in a safe place; you will use them frequently while you’re at RUB.
On your matriculation (enrolment) you received a RUB email address. It plays a crucial role while you’re at RUB, as it is used for almost all correspondence you receive from the teaching staff, the registrar’s office and the examinations office.
It follows the format “>First name<.>Last name<@ruhr-uni-bochum.de”, e.g. Max.Mustermann@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 find further information on how to use your mailbox here.
You can use the RUB eCampus to manage your studies online. You use the platform to register for lectures, seminars and exams, create your individual timetable, print your Studienbescheinigung (student registration confirmation certificate) and manage your personal data.
Log in with your RUB LoginID & password and, if applicable, your smartphone.
If you have enrolled for an economics degree, an engineering degree or the “Applied Computer Science” degree programme, you will use an additional platform called “FlexNow” to register for exams or to print an overview of your credits. The relevant information is available here.
