Overview for New Students


The Three or Four Most Important IT-Services

for new BOKU students

BOKUonline

During your study, BOKUonline will be your constant companion. This ranges from creating your account on Day One all the way to handing in your thesis at the end. In between you will register for numerous courses and exams using BOKUonline. It will also lead you to your lectures and show your exam results.

E-Mail System for BOKU Students

Yes, of course - you have your own email account at BOKU. Your email address ends with ...@students.boku.ac.at. Be aware of the fact that you will receive all your official messages at this email address - and do not miss these. To ensure you do not, use the mailing system for students or set up a forwarding via BOKUonline.

BOKU learn (also known as "Moodle")

Some (not all!) instructors use this e-learning platform in order to provide you with course material, texts, pictures, videos, forums, tests, online submission for homework tasks, etc.

PC Rooms, WLAN, Printing

You can access these essential services using your own computer and BOKU WLAN (eduroam) or you can simply use the public PC rooms. Equipment is, of course, also provided for you to print your texts and scan lecture notes.

Storage space

 You have acces to 20 GB of storage space, either as a drive in our PC rooms or from everwhere via web browser:
