e-platform for the Faculty of Humanities



Welcome to AGORA


On 31.1.2019 the AGORA website and the AGORA Login Page have been redesigned. We hope you like it and find your way! We are currently busy updating the AGORA Help Section step by step. If you are not able to find an answer to your AGORA problem in the Help Section or only an outdated one, please feel free to send us a support request.
     At the same time, the authentication sources were renamed: the "Uni Hamburg" source (the former "STiNE" ID) was renamed "Benutzerkennung der UHH"; please log in as usual with your "Benutzerkennung" (a.k.a. "B-Kennung"). The "AGORA (CommSy)" source has been renamed to "Lokale Kennung"; please select this source if you have once created your AGORA account based on an identifier expression that you have freely selected, and log in as usual.

Back up processes are performed on a daily basis between 5:00 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. in the RRZ. During this period, the platform's availability may be limited. In addition, technical maintenance is performed monthly. The RRZ informes accordingly on its website and furthermore points to the fact that, in case of urgent security matters, maintenance can be anounced and performed beyond this schedule.


AGORA took its name from the central square in ancient Greek cities. The integrated e-learning and e-science-platform has a strong focus on the special needs of Humanities computing and collaboration.
