Your LMU ID
Whether on- or offline, this is how you go about identifying yourself at LMU so that you can access all the services you need:
Activating your email account
You’ll receive your password and login for activation when you register at LMU.
In order to be able to use online services, you must be registered and have activated your personal access to the university network yourself. Activation is required so that you can use online functions like course and examination registration, and receive important information from the University via your personal email address. If you are already using a different email address, you should be sure to set up a redirect function for your Campus LMU email address. In order to use the complete range of study information services, you'll be required to set up a security question.
Connecting your laptop
To connect to the WiFi (WLAN) — available in all university buildings — install the VPN.
Digital applications for students
Set up your personal digital workplace: Your toolbox will provide you with access to all the functions required for your studies. After a simple registration process you will be able to log in and tailor your digital workplace by selecting the most valuable tools for you. You can also add new tools or delete those no longer required.
The IT Servicedesk is here to help if you wish to get an LMU user ID, have forgotten your password, or need support using the wireless network. Check out their opening hours (in German).
Online self-service function for students
From your application for an LMUcard to study certificates, LMU offers numerous online self-service functions for its students.
LMU has two large computer/video labs next to the Library in the main university building. Here you’ll find computers where you can get online and also access the many databases only available on the university network. Additionally, you can order printed posters, create PDFs, and a lot more. Most departments also have their own computer labs. Just ask!
