July 7, 2021: Payment of semester fees

Dear students,

With regard to the payment of semester fees, we would like to inform you as follows:

Please understand that the payment of your TUB semester fee is only possible via your tuPORT where you will get the information/reference for your payment. The TU expects your tuPORTs being available again about mid-July. Therefore, TU extended the re-registration period to August 31st, 2021.

Please also check the TU Website.

May 3, 2021: IT Services of TU Berlin still limited after attack

Following an attack on various IT systems at TU Berlin on the morning of April 30, 2021, the servers of the centrally managed Windows environment were shut down as a precautionary measure for security reasons. Services such as WLAN, sending/receiving emails, using tubCloud, the TU portal (tuPort) and the VPN client or SAP applications are currently not available to members of the university.

The TU Berlin is working at full speed to solve this issue and has mobilized an IT emergency task force under the leadership of the TU President. The university is also involving external IT security experts. The TU Berlin is in contact with the relevant federal and state authorities and has filed charges.

An assessment of the effort and duration of the current and further restrictions is not yet possible. Teaching and research will continue as far as possible under the technical restrictions.

You can find information about the status of the repair of the problems at the central TU services here: Campusmanagement TU Berlin

Due to failures of central TU services, ISIS is also affected.

ISIS will not be able to send emails until the TU mail service is back online. This affects among other things, forum notifications and any functions that send messages to users via email.

All other functions within ISIS should be available.


Since it is not yet foreseeable when the restrictions will be resolved again and we do not have access to our mails, we have set up a temporary email addressgpe_exam_team(at)

For urgent matters, please contact us via this temporary mail address using the familiar reference line.

Thank you for your understanding and stay safe!
