RUB Email Account / Internet Access
You have to activate your internet account to go online in your dormitory. This works on a RUB computer with a card reader (e.g. in the University Library, University Administration Building etc.) and you can do it in four easy steps:
- Put your student card into the card reader and enter your login ID (Benutzername) and PIN you received with your registration documents. The PIN can be found on a separate sheet.
- Go to "Passwort zu loginID setzen" and set a password. You can choose it yourself. You need this password to gain access to the internet and your RUB email account.
The data will be active approx. 1 hour later.
- You need an internet cable to access the internet in your dormitory. Connect your computer and go to https://login.rz.ruhr-uni-bochum.de. Register with your login ID and password.
- You have to register with your data at "RUB Webmail": https://mpx2.rz.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/roundcubemail/ to use your email account. After that you can use your RUB email account via RUBICon (chip card with card reader) at home, on RUB's computers or online via "RUB Webmail".
