The University as well as the Faculty provide staff and guests a variety of computing resources and online services. To access these services either a u:account or a math:account with their accompanying passwords are required.

Most of the IT services are provided by the University's Computer Center ("ZID") and need the u:account for access. The Faculty provides some additional services and for those the math:account is needed.

Information on the math:account

The math:account administration is handled by the secretaries in room 10.140, foremost Martina Fellner. They can

  • create an account for you if you don't have one already,
  • look up your account name,
  • reset your password if you forgot it, and
  • extend expired accounts if necessary.

Services that use the math:account are, for example, the login on the Faculty's Linux computers, the Faculty's print and copy service and the calendar service.

You can use our portal to see the data that is stored for your account. This data includes, among other things, your full name and the e-mail address used for communication (normally the University of Vienna e-mail address if there is one).

Information on the u:account

Most of the account administration can be done online by yourself (also see this page):

Unfortunately, some of these websites are only available in German. If you need assistance with this, please contact the ZID Helpdesk.

Services that use the u:account are, for example, the e-mail service, WLAN, VPN, Moodle e-learning, and ZID file services.
