IT for Students




The Campus Card is your student identification card for the entire duration of your studies at the h_da and is issued once free of charge. On the back of the card there is a special thermo-rewrite strip that has to be re-printed in one of the (re-)validation devices distributed throughout the university for each new semester. It is also valid in combination with your personal ID Card as ticket for the public transport in the RMV-region.

How to Re-registration and Withdraw.

Students are required to re-register before each semester and pay the tuition fee for that semester. There are also several ways to withdraw from Hochschule Darmstadt.

Master Password

You need the master password to activate or reset/unlock your h_da account self-service function. The master passwords are sent by our IT department usually a few days after your receipt of your CampusCard. If you have forgot your master password, please contact our Help Desk on the ground floor of the Studierendenhaus (C23).

Self-service functions for students:

Using the Self Servic Function you can print out your matriculation certificates by yourself. You may also use this function to take courses and register for your examinations.

Activate or reset your h_da account

With this operation you may activate your h_da account with your h_da user ID (or your student number) and your master password. You can also use this function to reactivate your h_da account if it is locked (i.e. if you have repeatedly entered the wrong password) or if you forgot your h_da password.

Check the state of your h_da account

With this operation you may check whether your h_da account is already activated and whether is locked due too many login attempts with a wrong password.

Change personal data

You may change your personal data like web address, password, spamfilter options and newsletter subscriptions here. You need your h_da user-ID and your h_da password of your activated account for these functions.
