Password reset via Video-Ident

University members who have not yet been able to reset their password (e.g. due to a stay abroad) and who therefore cannot access the digital UDE resources, the University offers a video identification procedure for password reset.

Dates and appointments will soon be available here on this page.


The procedure goes through the following steps:

Online appointment booking with personal details (students: University identification, matriculation number, date of birth, first and last name; staff members: University ID, date of birth, first and last name).

Confirmation of appointment to private e-mail

Invitation to the video session (Zoom end to end encrypted); appointment call at the time booked

Authentication process (students: official photo ID, student ID; staff members: (official photo ID, service ID))

If successful: initial password is issued

Immediate reset of the password by the user.
