IT for Students
"IT-Dienste und –Anwendungen” is responsible for IT and IT applications.
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.
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.
You need the master password to activate or reset/unlock your h_da account self-service function. Since the master passwords are sent separately by our IT department, you will usually receive your password a few days after receipt of your CampusCard. If you have lost your master password, please contact our Help Desk on the ground floor of the high-rise building. You will find the opening hours here.
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.
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.
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.
