I forgot my password.

If you have forgotten your password please contact the alumni office by sending us an e-mail proving your identity through a scan of your enrolment documents (“Immatrikulationsbescheinigung”) or another document stating that you were associated with HU. After verifying the document we will send you a new password via e-mail.

Can I still use the VPN-client as an alumnus/ alumna?

Is there a difference between my user name in the Alumni-Portal and my alumni-mail-address?

Yes. Your user name in the Alumni-Portal consists of namesurname (e.g. alexanderhumboldt). To create the user name for the Alumni-Mail please insert a dot between name and surname (e.g. alexander.humboldt@alumni.hu-berlin.de).

 

I already have an Alumni-Portal account but I don’t use the e-mail address I gave when I created the account or I can’t remember it. Do I need to create a new account?

No, you don’t need to register again. Please write us a short e-mail stating your new e-mail-address. Don’t forget to identify yourself, for example by attaching one of your HU certificates. After verifying your identification we will send you an automatically generated password to your new e-mail-address.
