After enrolment, the university login replaces the previously used applicant login in AlmaWeb.

Your user account will only be fully set up after you have activated it in the IDM system.

If a university login is not already available, employees will receive the login data for the central IT services of the University of Leipzig as part of the recruitment process, either by e-mail (if an e-mail address has been stored in the Human Resources Department) or via the respective institution.

Employees from the field of medicine also receive a university login if they belong to the Faculty of Medicine or are considered academic employees of the University Hospital.

In addition, there is usually already a separate access for the IT systems of medicine:

This is the responsibility of Division 1 (Information Management) of the University Hospital.
