User ID & Passwords
The User ID
Every student of Münster University receives a user ID at enrolment, every employee at the beginning of his/her enrolment. The ID cannot be changed and is valid until exmatriculation or end of employment, respectively. It is required for most online contents and for access to computer workstations.
The Standard Password
The standard password is required together with the user ID for user identification. The standard password is required for almost all university services - ranging from e-mail to the registration for lectures and exams. You can change your standard password in MyZIV.
The Password for Network Access
The password for network access is needed every time you want to access the university network with a computer that is not registered. This includes access via WLAN, VPN, pLANet and Teleport/DSL. The password for network access needs to be set once in MyZIV and must not be identical with the standard password.
