SIM student portal

After your enrolment is processed you will get access to the SIM student portal, which offers different functions than the SIM application portal. To access this new portal, you must first download your identification letter and change the master password specified there.

With your HIZ-ID and your changed master password, you can, among other things, now log into the SIM student portal.
From now on, please only use this student account to log in to the various portals of Saarland University, as you can only access all functions for enrolled students with this student identification.

During your studies, the SIM student portal will offer you the possibility to independently download various certificates. When accessing any certificate, you can either print it or download and save it.

The following certificates are available to you. Click on the document to see a sample certificate.
