Coupon for Employees


This text shows you how to redeem your coupon code as an employee of the RWTH.

Employees are staff (e.g. lecturers, federal service volunteers, student assistants, etc.) who have an employment contract with the department of Human Resources 8.0. As a result, employees will receive their ConnectMe coupon from the department by email.

Beware: Coupons can be redeemed the following day at the earliest. They also cannot be redeemed more than six weeks before the start of the employment contract.

After redeeming your Coupon, it can take up to 2 days until all your accounts are set up and your personal data has been synchronised with the databank of the Human Resources Department.

Only after completion you will gain the status "employee" and the use of its associated services.


People that have an employment contract with the University Hospital UKA receive their coupons by applying for the RWTH-services in the IT-Service-Portal of the UKA.
