Login and password
When you begin to study or work at our University, you need to register for a central login name, with which you get access to the most important IT services such as Wifi, E-Mail and Stud.IP.
Wifi and networks
Once you have your login data, you get access to the eduroam network from all across the University campus. Eduroam provides you with fast and secure internet access through a worldwide coalition of educational and scientific institutes. Once installed, you can also access the internet at other Universities - even internationally.
Email and Calendar
All students and employees will get a university e-mail address. This secure e-mail service is used for internal university correspondence.
Every student automatically receives an email address of the University with his or her computer center login (format: firstname.lastname@example.org)
The e-mail address is used for all university-related (e.g. examinations, dates etc.).
To make sure you don't miss any information, you can redirect all emails to your private email address.
With which e-mail software can I edit my e-mails offline (e.g. on the road) and use other groupware functions (calendar sharing, appointment invitations, etc.)? Here you will find instructions for configuring MS Outlook, Thunderbird, emClient, Android and iOS.
Every member of the university can apply for a personal email certificate which can be used to
- encrypt (only the recipient can read the email) and
- sign (the recipient can ensure that the email comes from the sender and has not been changed)
The university checks and guarantees the authenticity of the certificate.
Working on the go
You can use the VPN access of the Faculty of Engineering to access the following services from outside the university network. For example, from home, on the road or from the WLAN of the university, as the WLAN is also considered an external network.
- Access to your home drive (drive U:)
- Access to faculty internal resources (e.g. file shares, servers)
- Use of the university library catalogues
Students who are living in the residential homes (Bürgermeister-Hauptstr. and Friedrich-Wolf-Str) are authorized for internet access through the Cisco Any Connect VPN Client. That's why you can not connect a second vpn tunnel with our Fortinet Client at the same time, because technical two parallel vpn tunnels are not viable.
Virtual computers are Windows 10 desktops that you can use from anywhere, 24/7.
- Access to desktops within the faculty from anywhere (pool computers, own workstations)
- the desktops are already equipped with the usual software used in your area (BIW, EUI, MVU, SF)
- the desktops are maintained by FIW-IT (e.g. current Windows updates)
- Access to all internal resources (e.g. file shares)
- no VPN connection necessary
- automatic data backup and hourly snapshots when using the faculty's internal resources
- Your data does not leave the data center
The Wings provides the distance students of the courses of study
- Bachelor IT Forensics
- Master IT Security and Forensics
- Master Information Technology and Management
virtual computers via the VMWare Horizon platform. This gives you access to Windows 10 desktops that are already equipped with the licensed software you need for your studies from anywhere.

Storage and Backup
Wismar University provides storage space for all students (5 GB) and staff (10 GB), which you can automatically synchronise on your devices (PC, Android, iOS) and share with other people as required. The functionality is similar to a dropbox. However, your data is stored on the server of the university in Germany.
A drive for personal data (Windows drive U:) is available for employees and students of the FIW faculty. The drive has an initial capacity of 10 GB for employees and 2 GB for students. The storage space can be increased if required.
A snapshot freezes the data state at a certain point in time. This means that you can access your data at a certain point in time as the data looked at that point in time.
Snapshots are currently available for all "Personal Drives" and the FIW's central data shares.
Snapshots are also a good protection against the usual Crypto Trojans like "Locky" and Co.
Storage space for special purposes (e.g. as common data storage for project groups etc.) is provided on request. It is possible to display the memory automatically for certain groups of people and access control can also be group-based.
After registering with their personal university account on a Windows computer, all students and employees of the Faculty of Economic Sciences automatically receive the drive H:.
You can also mount this Windows share on the Linux terminal server Rivera.
