HE portal – University’s Intranet

HE portal – your entry point into the University’s Intranet

There are a number of areas that can be accessed internally by students that are not externally visible. For this reason, you should always log on to the HE portal. There you can find everything that could be interesting to you.

You access the portal with your personal username. There, you can find all the information you need about the lecture timetable/schedule (LSF), the learning platform, the University administration, and student representation - AStA, dates, and much more. 

Here, you can access the Intranet portal (after login) 


Where are the lectures/classes held?

How to find your room

The rooms at Esslingen University are numbered according to the following system:

Example: S 1.204

S/F/G = The letter tells you which campus
(S = Esslingen City Centre Campus, F= Esslingen Hilltop Campus, Flandernstrasse, G = Goeppingen Campus)

The number before the point
tells you the building number

The numbers after the point tell you the room number:
the first number denotes the floor within the building. 
If there is a minus sign (-1) before the first digit, the room is in the basement.

Thus, in our example, S 1.204 is located
on the City Centre Campus
in building 1
on the 2nd floor
and has the room number 204.
