Communication only via official student email addresses

The official email communication at the LUH will be send only to your student email address – not to your external and privately used accounts. To receive important information via email (e. g. notifications from Stud.IP, registration deadlines or updates on the corona situation) all enrolled students have to use their official student email address, which can easily be activated in your IDM account.

Please note: Despite of the similarities between the mail adress and the web adress of Stud.IP, your student emails can not be retrieved via Stud.IP. Please use the LUIS web mail service in you browser ( or a secure E-Mail-Client.
