We use MOODLE as a learning management system to accompany and support our courses.

This is how registration on the Moodle learning platform works:

  • Go to the website
  • Click on "Login" at the top right.
  • Click on "With LMU user ID" (green background).
  • Enter your LMU user name and password.
  • Click on "Accept" to confirm your data.
  • To access the Moodle courses of our faculty, click on "18 Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy" and then on the corresponding degree program. There you can register yourself for the courses you have attended using the "Einschreibeschlüssel" (registration key). You will receive the "Einschreibeschlüssel" and the exact course name from your lecturers in the course and ONLY if you have been admitted to the course. External participants cannot register for Moodle courses.

You can then simply scroll through the content in a course. Depending on the course, this usually includes PDFs, presentations, text announcements and videos. Sometimes lecturers also use participation options such as forums and live chats.

The faculty offers all students access to computers and software in five different so-called CIP rooms (= Computer Investment Program). The CIP rooms differ in the type of operating systems and software installed. Further information can be found on the CIP pool website.

The departmental Library of Chemistry and Pharmacy is the central library of Faculty 18 and brings together the collections of the four former institute libraries (Institute of Chemistry, Institute of Physical Chemistry, Institute of Pharmacy and Food Chemistry, and Institute of Pharmaceutical Biology).

You will need your LMUcard or library card to borrow books and to use many other services of the University Library.
