If you are unable to settle your affairs at Universität Hamburg yourself, you can authorize someone else to represent you in dealing with bureaucratic formalities such as enrollment matters, signing applications, etc. at the University.
Please submit a copy of the residence registration certificate (front and back page) of all persons named in the authorization.
We advise you to make several signed printouts or copies of this authorization, as your authorized representative will be expected to present it again during subsequent visits and for further requests.
You can use our authorization template or write an informal letter.
Important information on identification cards
Please note that we do not require all of the information on your identification card for authorization. Please black out any information we do not need to identify you—particularly the card access number and serial number. We only require the following information:
- last name
- first name
- date of birth
- place of birth
- expiry date
Alternatively, simply present the required identification document(s) to us in person together with the authorization. We will make a note of this; no further copy is necessary. The information will only be used for the authorization for enrollment. We will not save any copies of identification documents you provide and will destroy these immediately.
