The Header bar

The Header bar accompanies you through all the pages of the system. Regardless of what you do or where you might have gotten lost — the Header bar always helps you to find your way back to known territory. There are various symbols (icons) distributed across the bar. Each of these icons can be clicked on with the cursor — you then move to another page in the system. Some of the icons, for example the CHAT icon or “Who is online?” display can also change colours and thus indicate changes in the system. The icons in detail:

Cover page

With this symbol you can return to your cover page from any page of the system.


In Stud.IP you will need this page most frequently for the selection of the courses in which you have enrolled. To ensure that you will be able to reach this page quickly, we have incorporated a link into the Header bar.


You access Stud.IP’s internal messaging system via the letter icon. Using it, you can send messages to other Stud.IP user. These messages have the same functions as e-mails except that they reach users who are now online much more quickly — similar to SMS on mobile telephones. When you receive one of these messages, the letter icon turns red.


This icon leads you to the "Who is online" list, to the chat, to your contacts and study groups.


You reach your personal profile via this icon. Here you can provide information about your place of work, upload a picture of yourself, change your password and much more.


This icon is the fast access to your personal appointment calendar. The appointment calendar on Stud.IP manages your personal and occupational appointments, reminds you of birthdays, displays course appointments and much more. The best thing about it: you have access to this important data from any PC with an Internet connection. Furthermore, the appointment calendar can synchronise data with many other devices (such as PDAs). Via the “Planner” icon you additionally have access to the address book features, your schedule and other personal services.


By clicking on this icon you enter the search area of Stud.IP. You can look for courses, institutions, people who are registered in the system or for resources such as rooms or requisite equipment.

In addition, you have the opportunity to browse in the Stud.IP archive — all courses are archived. The key data is accessible to anyone (subject, lecturer, etc.); however, extended information or the uploaded term papers are only available to those who actually participated in the course (thus those who were enrolled in it).

Bulletin Board

This is the place where students look for flat-mates, old books and bycicles, a.s.o.


Here you can customize the layout of Stud.IP to suit your preferences (privacy, messages, forwarding to e-mail a.s.o.).


By clicking on "Help" you are transferred to our help pages. Our help system is mostly context sensitive. This means that the system attempts to find out which area of Stud.IP you need help for and directly offers you the relevant help page. If the page is not appropriate to you, you are given an overview of all Help topics by clicking on the large "Index" button (you can also find at the top of this page!).

Log out

Click on “Logout” and you have correctly logged out of the system.

For security reasons you should always logout correctly. If you do not logout, the next person who is using the computer you worked on can use Stud.IP with your identity.

After a certain period without doing something on Stud.IP, you will be logged out automatically.
