WHAT IS IDM?

IdM stands for “Identity Management” at Leibniz University Hannover. This is where students can manage several other accounts for online facilities required at university (such as wireless LAN, cloud services and the learning management system) in the central Account Manager. For this reason, IdM is also called the “central login page”.

Students gain access to the Account Manager via their LUH ID: when starting university, students are given a registration number, which they keep throughout their time at university. By the same token, students are allocated an LUH ID, giving them access to many central IT-based services.

All students receive their individual LUH ID together with their LeibnizCard. The cover letter contains not only the LUH ID, but also the initial password, which is necessary when registering for the first time, and may be useful if the password has to be reset at some point. The structure of the LUH ID is similar to that in the following example: LUH-1DP.
A student’s LUH ID and registration number will remain the same throughout their time at university.

The LUH ID must be activated before students can use the various IT services:

How to activate your LUH ID
  1. Login on the Account Manager page using your LUH ID and the initial password sent to you.
  2. Enter your email address or confirm the email address that you gave in your application.
  3. A verification code will be sent to this email address to ensure that you have access to it. Enter the verification code on the login page or follow the link given in the email.
  4. You will now be asked to create a new password for your LUH ID.

    Please note
    : The password must be a combination of symbols, letters, and upper case and lower case letters. Your password then acts as a kind of master key that will enable you to edit other passwords (e.g. wireless LAN) and to login to the online portal QIS (exam management).

  5. If you have forgotten your password, you can have it reset to the initial password by going in person to the Service Centre Information Desk and presenting your identity card.
