Web Portal kiz Services

Service Category: Campus & Business

The Portal is the central access point to electronic campus services around study and teaching offered at Ulm University.

Most of these services require authentication with a kiz account. Upon login, the portal – based on the central Identity Management System – provides functions and data that are personalised and user group-dependent.

In addition to functions that are fully integrated into the portal environment, it also refers to other functions that embody independent system solutions due to technical reasons, using either links or SSO (Single Sign On, which means a separate login is not required).

The Portal also offers centralised access to web-based information offered by the University and its institutions. Students and teaching staff are directed to contextually relevant information.
