For these instructions to work, Microsoft 365 has to be enabled in your Uni Bayreuth user account.

Steps 1-5 of these instructions describe how you can give the required Privacy Permissin Statement. This only has to be done once, so if you have already given the statement in the past, please skip to Step 6 now.

If you have not given the statement yet, go to now and log in with your university username and the respective password.


Click on Approvals.


Select Microsoft Account.


Accept the Privacy Permission Statement (if not already accepted) and click on Save changes.


Important: After giving the Privacy Permission Statement, it takes 1 - 2 hours until your Microsoft Account will be activated. In rare cases it can take up to 24 hours. Please wait before you continue to follow the instructions.


Go to and enter your university username + and click on Next.


You will be forwarded to the login page of the University of Bayreuth. The username from Step 3 should already be present. Now enter the respective password and click on Sign in.
