Scheduled maintenance: Thursdays, 20:00–22:00
Each Thursday there is a scheduled maintenance window between 20:00 and 22:00 during which we might restrict access to ILIAS at a relatively short notice for important service tasks, especially regarding the low-level server infrastructure. This will not necessarily happen every week and we are working hard to keep the actual downtime to a minimum (only a few minutes in most cases) but be we kindly ask our users to keep the possibility of short downtime in mind when accessing ILIAS during that period.

Help with logging in to ILIAS or registering an account

Student
»How can I log in to ILIAS?«
As a student (incl. PHD students) of the University of Stuttgart you log in to ILIAS with your university student account (aka "TIK account"). No registration is necessary or indeed possible. An ILIAS account will be automatically created during your first login. The login username is the part in front of the @ of your university e-mail address (following the schema of st123456), not the whole address.

In addition to your login a "local" ILIAS username will be generated to identify you only inside the learning management system. ILIAS usernames at the University of Stuttgart follow the schema of FirstnameLastname (plus an incremented number if the name already exisits, e.g. ArnoSchmidt3).

If you are a new student, who is still waiting for the enrollment at the university to be finalized, be advised that it is not possible to receive an ILIAS account ahead of your university account.
»Help, I have problems logging in / I have forgotten my password and/or username!«
Please contact the Benutzerberatung (student user support).
As a student you log in to ILIAS with your central university account. These accounts are kept in a central directory system to which ILIAS only has read access. Therefore neither ILIAS nor the ILIAS support can reset your password (or tell you your login name).
»How can I change my password?«
You can change the password for your university account on the SIAM selfservice page.
As a student you log in to ILIAS with your central university account. These accounts are kept in a central directory system to which ILIAS only has read access. Therefore neither ILIAS nor the ILIAS support can reset your password (or tell you your login name).
»Why don’t I receive e-mails in ILIAS?«
ILIAS is the University of Stuttgart’s central learning mangement system, not the mail server and/or the web interface to your mailbox. For the latter please go here:

mail.uni-stuttgart.de
 
Further information on the student mailboxes can be found here:
 
www.stud.uni-stuttgart.de/dienste/email
»I have different question …«
  • Questions regarding specific courses/groups, learning materials, course access settings and passwords etc. should always be addressed to the lecturer actually teaching the course and/or the course administrator. You can find the course administrator/owner in the course’s Info tab and can write an ILIAS mail. Further contact information can usually be found on the department homepage. Please refrain from asking the ILIAS support for a lecturer’s contact information.
  • For questions regarding any aspect of your university account please contact only the Benutzerberatung (student user support).
  • If you have specific question about or problems with ILIAS itself please write to ilias-support@tik.uni-stuttgart.de.
Lecturer / university staff
»How can I log in to ILIAS?«
As a lecturer/staff member of the University of Stuttgart you log in directly using your central university account (aka ac or SIAM account). No registration is necessary or indeed possible. An ILIAS account will be automatically created during your fist login. The login username always follows the schema of ac123456 (ie. if you are trying to log in with a username that follows different schema, you are very probably trying to use a wrong username).

An ac account is automatically created for everybody who gets any kind of employment contract via the university’s central administration. While the account creation happens automatically for everybody, the distribution of the account data (most likely) does not. The latter is usually done at the departmental level. When in doubt, please ask the administrator of your department who is responsible for issuing your account data to you. Under no cricumstances will you receive your account data from the ILIAS support, so please refrain from asking us otherwise.

This also applies to any kind of guest lecturer with a central employment contract.

Permission for course creation (in the semester sub-categories of the study programme categories in the repository) is automatically granted when logging in with an ac account.

In addition to your login a "local" ILIAS username will be generated to identify you only inside the learning management system. ILIAS usernames at the University of Stuttgart follow the schema of FirstnameLastname (plus an incremented number if the name already exists, e.g. ArnoSchmidt3).

Unfortunately, it is not possible to grant access to ILIAS for new staff members in advance of the creation and/or issuing of the central ac account.
»Help, I have problems logging in / I have forgotten my password and/or username!«
Since the ac/SIAM account you use to log in to ILIAS is kept a central directory service (to which ILIAS only has read access), ILIAS cannot reset your password (and neither can we).

Regarding your login username please keep in mind that it must follow the schema of ac123456 – if it doesn’t, it is most likely simply the wrong username.

You can check whether your login works on the SIAM selfservice page.

Only the colleagues responsible for such matters in your department can reset your password for you. Often two or three people per department have that responsibility. (When in doubt, please ask the department administrator.) If, in case of an emergency, none of them are available, please contact the UniAdmin support. Our colleagues will usually be able to help, too.
»How can I change my password?«
You can change your ac/SIAM account password via the SIAM selfservice page.
It cannot be changed in ILIAS.
»Who is regarded as staff member?«
Everybody for whom a valid ac/SIAM account exists in the university’s central directory service (no matter how temporary) is a staff member – at least as far as ILIAS is concerned. If you have any kind of employment contract via the central administration, this is you (compare »How can I log in to ILIAS?« above).
»Do you offer ILIAS trainings?«
Yes, in principal, though at the moment we are restructuring our ILIAS training offers. We’ll make further announcements regarding this as soon as possible.

In the meantime please to not hesitate to ask for individual training offers via ilias-support@tik.uni-stuttgart.de.

We also offer individual training on the departmental level.
»I have a different question …«
  • Please direct all questions regarding your ac account to the responsible colleagues in your department, or contact UniAdmin support.
  • If you have questions regarding the usage of, or problems with, ILIAS itself, please write us at ilias-support@tik.uni-stuttgart.de.
Guest student (from another university)
… from the University of Hohenheim or Tübingen, from the KIT or from the PH Ludwigsburg
Lecturers of the Universities of Stuttgart, Hohenheim, Tübingen, of the KIT in Karlsruhe and the PH Ludwigsburg can make their ILIAS courses availble for the students of each of the other four universities via a mechanism called E-Learning Community Server (ECS).

It is therefore not necessary and indeed not possible to request local accounts for students from those universities.

The sharing of the courses is an option (usually) activated by the lecturers themselves, so please ask the them whether they have already done so.

There is an exception to the latter: At the moment (since the summer of 2015), each semester the degree programs AnglistikGermanistikLinguistik and Sportwissenschaft are shared with the University of Hohenheim as a whole. No individual course needs to be shared.

If you are a student from one of the above-mentioned universities and are experiencing problems, please always contact your local ILIAS support, not us. If necessary, our colleagues will get in touch with us to resolve the matter.
… from the State University of Music and the Performing Arts (MH Stuttgart)
As a student of the MH, please first check whether you are already registered at the University of Stuttgart, too. (This is quite likely!) In this case, you will receive a university account and have to follow the instructions for the University of Stuttgart’s regular students above.

If that is definitely not the case, you can receive a registration/reactivation code for an ILIAS account from Prof. Dr. Hermann a the MH. Please contact him directly.

Accounts registered/reactivated with a code are only valid for one semester. You will have to get a new account for each semester.
… from another university
Guest students form another university can receive a code for registering a restricted ILIAS account (usually for the duration of one semester). This code has to be requested by a department/lecturer/staff member of the University of Stuttgart.

Guest students can under no circumstances request a code for themselves.

The same applies to a code to reactivate an existing account.
This does not apply for ERASMUS+ and Overseas students. If you come to Stuttgart via the ERASMUS+ and Overseas program, you will (automatically) receive a regular student account from the university. Please see the information for regular students above.
»I have received a code – how can I register or reactivate an account?«
To register a new account please use the registration form.

The reactivation of an existing account simply happens during normal login.
»Help, I have an account but I forgot my password/username!«
Pleas use the "Forgot password?" or "Forgot username?" features of ILIAS.
»I have a different question …«
  • Questions regarding specific courses/groups, learning materials, course access settings and passwords etc. should always be addressed to the lecturer currently teaching the course and/or the course administrator. You can find the course administrator/owner in the course’s Info tab and can write an ILIAS mail. Further contact information can usually be found on the department homepage. Please refrain from asking the ILIAS support for a lecturer’s contact information.
  • If you have specific question about or problems with ILIAS itself, please write to ilias-support@tik.uni-stuttgart.de.

Guest student (Studium Generale)
»How do I get access to ILIAS?«
As a Studium Generale guest student you automatically receive a code that enables you to register a new or reactivate an existing ILIAS account for one semester.

This code is only distributed via the Studium Generale office. (Under no circumstances will you receive a code from the ILIAS support.)

Additional notes
  • Since ILIAS access for Studium Generale guest users is a voluntary effort we can only offer limited e-mail support and no phone support for these guest users at this time.
  • The reactivation of an existing account is only possible after the account has actually become inactive.
  • The code is not a new password. Passwords of existing accounts do not change during reactivation.
  • If you register a new account even though an older account exists, you have to continue to use the new account; the old one will be deleted.
»I have received a code – how can I register or reactivate an account?«

The reactivation of an existing account simply happens during normal login.
»Help, I have an account but I forgot my password/username!«
Pleas use the "Forgot password?" or "Forgot username?" features of ILIAS.
»How do I gain access to ›my‹ courses?«
As a Studium Generale guest student you usually cannot register for courses yourself. Instead you have to contact the course’s lecturer and ask to take part and to be added as a course member. Please give your ILIAS username to the lecturer for this purpose.

The lecturer/course administrator/owner can be found in a course’s Info tab. You can write a mail via ILIAS. Further contact information can usually be found on the department homepage. (When in doubt we recommend using the search function on the university homepage.)

After you have been added as a participant, the course will automatically be shown on your Personal Desktop in ILIAS.

Nach der Aufnahme erscheint der jeweilige Kurs direkt auf Ihrem Persönlichen Schreibtisch in ILIAS im Bereich Ausgewählte Angebote.

Selected courses from the Department of History are the exception – you can register for them directly. Please direct all inquiries about this to that department.

If you have problems registering for, or questions about, a specific course and/or its content, pleast always ask the lecturer.
»I have a different question …«
If you have a specific question about, or problems with, ILIAS itself (which are not answered above), please write to ilias-support@tik.uni-stuttgart.de.

Please do not ask us …

  • … to grant you access to a course,
  • … how to access ILIAS etc.
