HR & Finance Services (

At the beginning of the new year 2021/2022, the University of Vienna implemented a mammoth digitisation project:

its entire human resources management (AUP: general administrative university staff, WUP: scientific staff) was converted from 'analogue-software-supported' to digital. In this context, we would like to point out that, on the one hand, the AUP also includes the general administrative project staff and, on the other hand, the WUP also includes the scientific project staff.

With the system conversion, processes of -

  • time management: recording of daily working hours (AUP), sick and health notifications (AUP/WUP), request for care leave (AUP/WUP), request for recreational leave (AUP/WUP), request for special leave (AUP/WUP), request for compensatory time (AUP/WUP), etc.

and of

  • travel management: Business trips (applications and settlements), etc. -

were modernised and at the same time digital enhanced with new functionalities.

In addition, the corresponding approval processes by superiors (project leaders, dean) have also been digitalised.

All this can now be done via PC or mobile devices, although there are still technical difficulties, especially in the case of mobile phones and smartphones. A solution to this problem is already being worked on. A modern interface now simplifies all processes. The personnel management system is now simpler, more comprehensible, faster and more transparent.

  • No installation is required!
  • The application runs on a web interface for employees of the University of Vienna.
  • This can also be accessed on mobile devices. You can access the system with your u:account ID and your u:account password (= Single Sign On principle).

  • All employees make their own entries in the area of time and travel management (including corrections within the designated time periods)!

Entries of absences for other employees by the time officers are only planned in absolutely exceptional cases and on the instructions of the superior (Dean Bot).
