Accounts whose passwords have not been changed will be blocked for security reasons from 3 June 2020. If you wish to continue using the account, you must immediately change your password at https://rub.de/login.

Further information on the required password changes are now available in English on the IT-Services website.
Due to the cyber attack on Ruhr-Universität Bochum, all users with a RUB login ID must set a new password immediately. This also applies to so-called combined services that are used to run functional email addresses. Changing the password is a security measure. Instructions and detailed information for students and members of the teaching and administration staff are available on the IT-Services homepage (German).
