Automated messages are currently being sent out to our UHH users to inform them on a necessary merger of accounts. Visit this page for general instructions. E-mail us if you have any questions.

New to AGORA?

UHH students and employees do not need to apply for a separate CommSy ID. Just log in with your UHH user account (formerly "STiNE ID", e.g. Bae1234) and the corresponding password. Make sure that "STiNE" is selected as source. External users click on "Create new account" and fill in the registration form. For each login, select "AGORA (CommSy)" as source.

In response to a recent security compromise, the RCC urges all CommSy users to change their passwords for CommSy platforms including AGORA. Stine IDs are not affected.

Further information and how to change your password:

On Tuesday, September 15, the AGORA platform will be unavailable for two hours (starting 11 a.m. CET), because CommSy will be updated to version 8.3.0.

On May 19th, a new update for CommSy has been released. If you are experiencing any problems while accessing AGORA, please delete the browser cache and cookies in your browser settings. This should fix most update-related problems.

From February 16 to March 18, there will be no in-office consultation-hour. Meanwhile, please feel free to email us with your questions.

From 21/12/14 until 04/01/15 there will be no in-office consultation-hour. Please feel free to email us with your questions, we will get back to you as soon as possible.

On 22/09/14, a new update for CommSy has been released. If you are experiencing any problems while accessing AGORA, please delete the browser cache and cookies in your browser settings. This should fix most update-related problems.

On Saturday (09/11/13) our platform will be down due to electricity maintenance at the RRZ that will presumably last all day. Thank you for your understanding. 

CommSy 8.1.0 is live! The update contains different kinds of bug fixes. Reportedly it also brings problems with several functions for some users, especially with material upload. 

If you are experiencing problems that seem to be interface related (missing buttons e.g.), please clear your browser cache.
