TUMonline & Moodle

TUMonline

TUMonline is TUM's campus management software, which you already know from your application. Through TUMonline, you can manage and organize your studies at TUM.

Please have a look on the information page for further details. This Wiki entry collects all the manuals for students using TUMonline.

Moodle

Moodle is TUM's e-learning platform. Lecturerers will usually provide their supporting material, such as lecture notes or task sheets via moodle.

You can login to moodle via your TUM-mail-address and TUMonline password. Registration for courses is automatically transferred from TUMonline.

Campus Maps & Roomfinder

Almost all regular courses taught in CoMe take place on Munich main campus. Only selected electives and/or individual electives will take place on Garching campus.

Maps of TUM's buildings can be found on the maps and plans page. If you are looking for a apecific room, you can use TUM's roomfinder.

The room numbers at TUM have four digits:

  • the first digit represents the floor,
  • the second digit the building,
  • the third and fourth digits denote the room number.

Building numbers on the north site are prefixed with an “N”.

Please also have a look at the following online campus-tour: https://www.explore.tum.de/campustour/interaktiv/english/.

Course & Exam Registration

Course and Exam registration are done through our portal TUMonline, see above. All details will be explained during the welCoMe address.

It is sufficient to register for the first semester courses at this point. Registration to the courses offered during the welCoMe week can be found below.

If you want to go ahead and register anyway you are welcome to do so. Here is some frequently requested information for you:

  • Course and exam registration are decoupled. You can join a course, but not register for the exam. Exam registration usually opens during the lecture time, so there is plenty of time for you to decide on whether to participate in the exam or not.
  • Course registration in TUMonline gives you access to the course material on moodle.
  • There is no fee for registering to courses.
  • The best way to register for courses in TUMonline is through the Study Plan/Curriculum functionality. This way you'll always find the right course.

Fit for TUM

Fit for TUM is a service fair for newcomer students at TUM. It usually takes place in the same week as the welCoMe week. 

You will find a lot of information and events under the following link: https://www.tum.de/en/studies/during-your-studies/starting-your-studies/service-fair.
