User identification

A personal user identification is assigned to each employee or student in the course of the recruitment process or the initial placement in a course of study. The user identification can be found on the back of your CampusCard. This allows you to authenticate yourself to all online services of the university (as example E-Mail, VPN, Intranet, e-Learning, MyFiles, …).

For the protection of you and your personal data please change the assigned password immediately after receipt in the self-service portal. Please also consider our flyer "Simply safer in 7 steps".

Library identificationEinklappen

In addition you'll find the library ID on the CampusCard (as numbers and barcode). With that you get access to the

Group identificationEinklappen

Administrators (directors or authorized representatives of an organizational unit, such as a professorship) can apply for non-personal identifiers via "edit group identifier" via the Self-service portal.These identifiers are typically associated with a functional email address (e.g. secretariat-xyz@uni-bayreuth.de) and can’t be used for personalized services. The current prices for the provision of additional group IDs can be found after authentication on our Intranet.

Student identification (s-ID)Einklappen

Until March 2016 students were assigned a s-ID (e.g., s1mamust) with the first enrollment.But there is no difference to the now assigned personal user IDs (btxxxxxx). Of course all student services can also be used with an s-ID!

Forgot passwordEinklappen

Employees should contact the ITS-Contact point personally (Phone 0921 55 3003 or its-beratung@uni-bayreuth.de). Then we can generate a new "first password" for you. Please change it immediately via the Self-service portal!

Students can reset their password via CAMPUSonline. If you need help please contact cmhelp@uni-bayreuth.de or Phone 0921 55 7664 directly to the CAMPUSonline-Team!

High performance calculation (HPC)

For CPU-intensive research projects the IT service center provides computing power on the Linux clusters btrzx5, btrzx3 and btrzx2 for all users. The high-performance computers of the Leibniz Data Center of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences can be accessed for research projects that require considerably more computing power.

The documentation of the clusters can be found under

If you need help selecting the appropriate computer cluster as well as questions concerning the use and the existing compilers or the software please contact Dr. Bernhard Winkler.

Please send any errors, problems or suggestions via E-Mail to hpc@uni-bayreuth.de.

Cluster of the Leibniz-data centerEinklappen

The Leibniz-Computing center (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences in Munich operates both the SuperMUC and various cluster systems. The access to the SuperMUC is restricted to projects with particularly high computing resources requirements and is regulated by a steering committee. The assignment of user IDs for the cluster systems at the LRZ on the other hand in the context of the state concept is uncomplicated and usually immediately the LRZ master user of the connected data centers.

If you need an ID or have further questions about the use of the clusters at the LRZ please contact Dr. Bernhard Winkler.

Information about the systems at the LRZ can be found on the websites there:

House printingEinklappen

Do you want to print flyers, posters (up to DIN A1), books or postcards not only in the corporate design of the University of Bayreuth? Even lecture scripts, term papers, final- and doctoral theses aren’t a problem and are produced in many formats as desired. You can conveniently submit the print job online at

The billing takes place via the cost center or for private orders via the CampusCard. If you have any questions please contact us via E-Mail druckerei@uni-bayreuth.de or contact Christian Gohlke (Phone: 0921 55 5282). Of course you can also come by in person at the printing house.

Plotting orders (up to DIN A0)Einklappen

To print with our plotters you'll need the IPrint-Client of Novell. Under "Web access: install iprint printer" you can download the installation tools for our plotters (djfoto, djnorm). Please note you must temporarily deactivate the "Force Driver Signature" under Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 for driver installation under System Settings. The choice of the desired size (DIN A4 to DIN A0) is only possible before sending the print job and important! If you need help please contact the ITS contact point.

Printing options and prices

  • General for order by E-Mail on data carriers or on-site print orders € 5,00
  • Poster on normal paper (printer name djnorm)
    A0 € 5,60, A1 € 3,30, A2 € 2,05, A3 € 0,85, A4 € 0,70
  • Poster on photo paper (printer name djfoto)
    A0 € 13,00, A1 € 6,60, A2 € 5,40, A3 € 3,85, A4 € 2,80

Print output

The printouts and posters are laid out in the print/ plot output room in the IT service center. A delivery by the in-house mail can’t be made. In this room is also a large cutting machine so posters can be tailored.


  • In exceptional cases a delivery of print files for the two design jets by e-mail, CD, USB stick, or similar is possible. However this should be the exception. For extra staff the costs per print job submitted to the IT service center an expense allowance of € 5.00 is calculated! Please contact us by E-mail Posterprinter@uni-bayreuth.de.
  • Please note that several users share these output devices and the printing of a DIN A0 poster takes about 30 minutes (pure printing time, without editing). Therefore under certain circumstances - especially before meetings - waiting periods of up to one day are possible. So you should plan your posters in time. It is expressly stated that it is the responsibility of the user (and not of the IT service center) if a poster can’t be printed on time.
  • In addition it may happen that - due the flexitime in the ITS - from 15:00 (Mo.-Th.) or about 12:00 (Fr.) no more operation takes place.
