Technische Universität Berlin

IT Services & Communications Technology

TU Berlin members have access to a wide range of IT application and services. These services are provided by different units depending on the context in which they are required (office and work spaces, mobile working and/or teaching). Please contact the relevant unit with any questions or problems you may have.

Information about your TU account and provisioning

You require a TU Berlin user account (TU account) in order to use the University’s IT services. The process of registering for an account is known as provisioning at TU Berlin.

Staff generally receive the details they require for provisioning from Human Resources prior to commencing employment. Students will be contacted by the Office of Student Affairs as part of the enrollment procedure.

External provisioning can be organized for those working on short-term contracts or projects. Please contact the unit, such as academic chair, where you are working.
