Your Uni-ID is your personal user ID of the University of Mannheim. The Uni-ID is used to verify the identity of the members of the University of Mannheim. Together with the individual password it is your log in for the following services, among others:
Uni-ID for students
If you go to the “First steps“ section in the student portal (Portal²), you can retrieve your Uni-ID and the initial password. You can use the access information from the online application to login. After you have changed the initial password, you can use your Uni-ID to login.
You are a student at a cooperating institution?
In order to receive your Uni-ID and ecUM card, you must register for a library card. Please follow the instructions on the UB website.
Uni-ID for employees and non-enrolled doctoral students
If you are a new employee at the University of Mannheim, a personal Uni-ID is automatically created. If new employees already have a personal Uni-ID, e.g. due to switching from studying to working at the University of Mannheim, no personal Uni-ID will be created. In this case, please submit a request for modification (Änderungsantrag), so that your personal Uni-ID will be updated to match your new status.
If you are a doctoral student and are enrolled or have not yet been employed by the University of Mannheim, please send the registration form signed by the supervising professor via e-mail to the University IT (benutzerverwaltung.unit), both in the case of an initial application (Erstantrag) and in the case of a change of status (Änderungsantrag). uni-mannheim.de
If you are employed by a cooperating institution (Heidelberg University, University of Applied Sciences Mannheim, ZEW – Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research, GESIS – Leibniz-Institute for the Social Sciences, Leibniz-Institut für Deutsche Sprache, Evaluationsagentur Baden-Württemberg, Ludwigshafen University of Business and Society), you have to register for a library card. Please follow the instructions on the UB website.
The personal Uni-ID has to be renewed every year. A reminder is sent to the email account which is linked to the personal Uni-ID.
If you are a non-enrolled doctoral student under the doctoral student management (Doktorandenverwaltung) and your personal Uni-ID has to be renewed, the doctoral student manager needs to apply for the renewal by email.
If the personal Uni-ID is blocked, e.g. because the employment was terminated, a notification is sent to the email account linked to the personal Uni-ID.
