Enrollment process

C@MPUS Guide

In this guide we explain step by step how to enroll at the University of Stuttgart. The enrollment process takes place online via the campus management portal C@MPUS.

Enrollment takes place online

Since the winter semester 2023/24, enrollment at the University of Stuttgart is carried out exclusively online using the campus management portal C@MPUS.


You can complete your application for enrollment by clicking on "Send" after entering your data. You do not have to sign the application or submit it in paper form. It is possible to print your application for enrollment in C@MPUS. However, this will only create a data overview that is for your own records.
