We are looking forward to welcoming you to UE for the winter semester. During the 'Welcome Days' you will get to know all relevant service areas, your fellow students and professors. Since we are still in the midst of a global pandemic, not all events can take place as usual in large groups on campus. However, we do hope to be able to provide you with all the necessary information you need for the start of your studies.

The university information system CampusNet offers everything about:

  • Application and admission procedures
  • Student administration
  • Overview of degree programmes
  • Viewing examination schedules and results
  • Faculty information

It is your responsibility as a student to have the technical equipment (e.g. laptop or smartphone), including the necessary software, at your disposal at the beginning of your studies in order to be able to participate fully in the teaching and examination formats.

Please find a brief description around the usage of MS Office 365 here in our dedicated manual.

How can we provide students with an engaging learning experience on and off campus?

  • If for some reason government guidelines change in the next few months, we can't open our campuses. However, our study guarantee assurance offers you the following benefits:  
    • If your campus is not open, we will offer our programmes through online classes. Your learning experience will match the face-to-face experience and follows a similar schedule.
    • We will offer our programmes via streaming with MS Teams and provide you with all the support you would expect from our career, library and other UE services.

You will find everything about our service and finance team in this FAQ.

Please find all location-related information in regards to COVID-19 across all our campuses here: Hamburg, Iserlohn, Berlin and Potsdam.
