Duration, unsubscribing and deletion

User accounts are automatically generated according to the data provided by the human resource or student administration in charge or based on an approval of related user applications (see point applications).


Automatically generated user accounts for staff members are valid from activation date on over the duration of the employment contract. The user account will be blocked 30 days after the employment contract has expired. In case a new contract is entered within the blocking period, the user account is automatically reactivated.

Automatically generated user accounts for students are valid from activation date on over the duration of the studies. The user account will be blocked 30 days after de-registration.

User accounts of guests and function accounts are blocked one day after the expiry of validity. The user account of guest students can be prolonged or reactivated on presentation of the valid student certification within the blocking period, for all other guest or function accounts on presentation of a new user application.

Unsubscribing from the ITMC

Upon termination of studies, an application for exmatriculation is submitted to the Student Secretariat. Students can submit the chip card together with the exmatriculation application to the Student Secretariat. Alternatively, students can obtain a stamp and signature against return of the chip card at the reception of the ITMZ (entrance area of the Konrad-Zuse-Haus, Albert-Einstein-Straße 22, open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) or by mail to Universität Rostock IT- und Medienzentrum 18051 Rostock.

(Additional information on de-registration and the related application are provided here.)

Employees can also return their chip cards and employee cards at the ITMZ reception. Alternatively, they can also return them to the ITMZ by internal mail.

Deletion of data

The user account is automatically deleted 90 days after the day of user account blocking. The deletion of data in independent systems depends on the conditions valid for every relevant system.
