University User Account

Please set up a Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin user account. Only then will you be able to access computers, register for courses, create a HU e-mail account and use other services. Fill in the online form and type in your PIN, which is printed on your enrollment certificate.


Agnes is our course catalogue and the platform where you can register for seminars, download your transcript and a PDF of your student ID. When you don’t have a campus card yet, on Agnes you will also find a QR code with which you can go to the campus card machines (e.g. in the Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm Zentrum or in the HU main building) and print your own campus card (either with taking a photo for identification or without). Please also do not forget to print the semester ticket/the semester dates onto your campus card with the machine right next to the campus card machine, as with the dates only the campus card is valid as a semester/public transportation ticket.

In case you want to reregister for the next semester, Agnes will also have the required information for you. After logging in and clicking on “Rückmeldeinformation” you will find the bank details to transfer the semester fee, as well as your new student ID as soon as the HU received and booked your semester fee. Then again you have to print the semester dates on your campus card to validate it for public transportation.

Your HU account credentials also work for moodle. If you have not received your HU-account yet, you can also register separately with any e-mail address as a user name.
