NO ACCESS TO BOSS AND CAMPUS PORTAL FROM NOV. 28 TILL DEC 11TH!

The TU is about to switch their separate systems of BOSS, LSF etc. into one integrated system. To do that, any TU member will be prohibited from accessing these systems starting November 28th until December 11th. 

Therefore, if you need a prove of study, to book exams or anything similar, do it now!

Here the text from the University on the project: 

In the Campus Management Project, TU Dortmund University’s software products for organizing study and teaching operations are currently being gradually replaced by the new integrated IT system HISinOne. Since June 2021, for example, prospective students with German university entrance qualifications have already been applying via the new system.

The next step involves a transfer of the student management processes for all TU students to HISinOne. To prepare this step, it is necessary to migrate the existing student data records from the current into the new system. During the period of this transition, the current IT systems for student and examination management will not be available for approximately two weeks.

Within this period, teachers and students will not have access to the

BOSS system and to Campusportal. The Student Registration Office and the Central Examinations Office will also not be able to enter data or make changes to existing data. It will therefore not be possible, for example, to process enrolments, leaves of absence, changes of degree programs, re-registrations, or removals from the register of students. Similarly, the Central Examinations Office will not be able to enter examination registrations, coursework or examination results.

We plan to keep the period for this changeover as short as possible.

Currently, we anticipate shutting down the BOSS-system and Campusportal from Nov. 28th to Dec. 11th, 2022. Please take this period into account in your planning.

The contact persons in the Student Registration Office and the Central Examinations Office are available to answer any questions regarding the matter.

In generell and outside of fresher’s week, we’re your go-to people for all questions or problems concerning your studies or life as a student (on campus and off it). But we’ll give you more information on that later! 

WHAT DO WE OFFER DURING FRESHER’S WEEK?

FRESHER’S HELP DESK

Directly in front of the Emil-Figge-Str. 50 building, you can find our help desk. Marquees and flags bearing our logo as well as the moniker „Erst-Hilfe-Station“ should make us unmissable.
