IdM (Identity Management) and FAUcard
IdM and FAUcard
The Identity Management (IdM) system manages access to numerous services at FAU. The IdM portal is used to activate and manage the University’s services, such as WiFi (e.g. eduroam), e-mail, your FAUcard and the University Library. You can also see the personal data which you have saved (e.g. name, address) here.
The FAUcard is the ID card for all members of the University and has several different functions (e.g. library card, cafeteria, access control systems).
You need to activate your IdM user account to use all FAU services. To do so, you will need your activation letter which contains your user ID and a single-use activation password.
Staff who have an employment contract with FAU will be sent this data automatically by the human resources department, along with their FAUcard.
