Information about licensing and named-user accounts

ArcGIS Pro licensing

You will receive an account from the administration team, which is necessary for the login in ArcGIS Pro (Named User license). To create an account, we need the following information (in case of multiple accounts for A-, F-, and M-projects please bundled as.CSV-Table):

  • First name
  • Surname
  • TU Dortmund- E-Mail (without abbreviations)

Please send the above information to Mathias Schaefer  with the purpose of use for the software.

Important note: Please do not send any account request for the course GIS and Spatial Planning; here, you will automatically receive a named-user account after logging into the corresponding Moodle environment.

After the account creation, you will receive an email from Esri© with all user data, including password. With this account you can log in to ArcGIS Pro on your desktop and use ArcGIS Online. Please log in promptly, as the link will lose its validity after a few days. In addition, the Named User can be used to unlock various other apps that add value to teaching and research (ArcGIS Insight, Collector for ArcGIS, Survey123 for ArcGIS, ArcGIS Dashboard, Esri CityEngine, etc.). In addition, the Named User is the prerequisite for unlocking various learning materials in the Esri Academy.

Your account remains valid throughout your study. You can also use it for exercises, student projects, and theses. You do not need to ask for an ArcGIS Pro account again.


ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Desktop are installed in the PC Pools (GB I + GB III) and ready to use (also via Citrix). In order to use ArcGIS Pro, you have to be logged in with your Named User account.

Location & approach

The TU Dort­mund campus is located near the Dort­mund West interchange, where the A45 Sauerland line crosses the B1/A40 Ruhr expressway. The Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Cam­pus, while the Dort­mund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Cam­pus. Coming from the A45, you can turn onto Stockumer Straße via Universitätsstraße. This in turn is connected to Baroper Straße, along which Cam­pus South extends. If you take the exit of the A-40, the route via Emil-Figge Straße, Marie-Curie Allee to Baroper Straße is appropriate. If you turn from Baroper Straße into Au­gust-Schmidt Straße, you have the opportunity to reach the parking lot directly behind the GB III.

The South Cam­pus is connected via Stockumerstraße by bus lines 440 and 449, which run every 10 minutes. Cam­pus South can be reached on foot from the Am Gardenkamp stop, and the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station is also located near the Eichlinghofen stop. The bus lines connect to the U42 light rail line at the Barop Parkhaus stop, which provides connections to the Dort­mund-Hombruch district and Dort­mund downtown. 

From Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen, the South Cam­pus is connected to the H-Bahn network via the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station. Line 1 runs here every 10 minutes, and the South Cam­pus is served by the Cam­pus Süd stop. 
A connection to Cam­pus North is also provided. Line 2 shuttles between Cam­pus North and Cam­pus South every 5 minutes.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the uni­ver­si­ty campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty station.
