The first step is to activate your central TUM account.
Your TUM account gives you access to e-mail, online storage, WiFi and other central services. The account is administered via our TUMonline campus management system and comprises three elements: TUM ID (i.e. go42tum), TUM e-mail address (i.e. email@example.com) and personal password.
Find out who the TUMonline administrator is in your department or unit. This person will give you a PIN code for the initial access to TUMonline.
Enter the PIN code and your date of birth in TUMonline. Click here
After logging in, select your personal password.
If you already have a TUM account (for example, through previous studies or employment), your already existing TUM account will automatically be given the status "Mitarbeiter/in" and you will be able to log in with your usual password as before. A renewed activation is no longer necessary. Forgot Password?

Step 2: Set-up your TUM e-mail address
Set up a TUM e-mail address in TUMonline (i.e. first name.last firstname.lastname@example.org).
The TUM e-mail address is your central e-mail address, which you will use to receive important messages. Please make sure that these e-mail messages can reach you. To do that, you can set up e-mail forwarding should you wish to use an existing e-mail inbox.
Go to your TUMonline business cardand click on "e-mail address(es)", then select the address you want. If needed, set up e-mail forwarding to another TUM address.
