What is the purpose of the FU-account?
Once your FU-Account has been activated, you will have access to various services and features that you can use during your time at university.
You can log in to Campus Management with the credentials of your FU-Account. Campus Management is the central course registration platform: During the registration period at the beginning of every semester, you can register for classes there. You should pay attention to the different registration deadlines for classes with limited student capacity and those without. You can register and deregister for classes and modules until the end of the registration period.
Before you register for classes and modules on Campus Management for the first time, we recommend you to attend the central and subject-specific introductory events first.

Your FU-Account gives you access to the central learning platform Blackboard. Many of the university’s lecturers use the system to communicate with you throughout the semester, share learning material, or sometimes for surveys and tests. Blackboard also offers useful collaboration tools for you to work with classmates.

So called User Wikis are another tool you can use through the ZEDAT-Portal. A wiki enables you to share and work on content with members of your study or presentation group. It’s a useful tool for organizing group work or for exchanging study material.
The ZEDAT’s software portal is also very useful for students. With your FU-Account, you can download software for free for your own private use or buy them at a low price.
You don’t have to be on campus to use the university network but can also access it from your home. This would, for example, enable you to use library resources available online while studying at home. To use the university network off-campus, you either need a VPN client or have to use the HTTP proxy server with which you can link your device to the university network without having to be on campus
