How can I access the central university services?

First go to MIA to start the self-registration. This step is obligatory to get your login data for central university services. In case you only changed your course of studies and already have access to all systems, you do not need to complete the self-registration process.

Important: the Self-registration with MIA is only possible once! Each subsequent try results in error code SSPR 5021. Should you have forgotten your newly set password or not written down your department code, please send us an email to

During the self-registration process you will be asked to assign a password for the access of your university email address. You will receive your login ID (the so-called department code, e.g. mmuste1s) which enables you to log in to most university services.

After self-registration you have access to the following services:

  • E-Mail Outlook Web App (OWA)
    Access: department code + self-assigned password
    Description and function: central mail server for students (except for students of the Department of Computer Science).
