  3. The Institute or Faculty should send the completed form via house post to the University IT Services, the address can be found on the form.
  4. A couple days later you will receive your Uni-Account per internal house post with an initial password along with general information regarding the account.

Extending an existing guest account

If you are already registered and would like to extend the duration of your Uni-Account or if you need more access rights, please write a formal request for extension through the University Institute that you are contracted under. Please include your Uni-Account number in the upper right-hand corner of the letter.

How to request extended rights for a Uni-Account

If you require extended rights as a guest professor, please request this through the University Institute or Faculty for whom you are working. Make sure to include your Uni-Account number in the request.

Please see the following list for an overview of the possible extended rights:

ReDI (research service)
'ReDI' is the right to use the online resources  of the University Library (journals, data bases, e-books, etc.). Due to lisencing restrictions, the online media is only available to those members of the University that have a research or teaching contract.
For further details, please see Freiburg University's Concept of Rights for IT Services.

As soon as your account has received these extended rights, you will need to log in and distribute your password to all the other IT Services by going into the management platform in myAccount. Please click under the menu point 'Pass-/keyword,' then click on 'Distribute password.'
