All members of ETH Zurich receive at the beginning of their study or employment an ETH user name and an ETH password for web applications, AAI (LDAP). They must change this password as soon as possible.
The ETH user name is generated and assigned automatically by the system and cannot be changed – not even in the event of change of the member’s surname (e.g. after marriage).
