Order Cloud subscription

The required cloud subscription can be ordered via the IT shop
  1. Open https://itshop.ethz.ch and login with your ETH username and password in the upper right corner
  2. Click on Service Catalog –> Identity and Access –> Cloud Subscription –> Microsoft Cloud Access.


    IMPORTANT: Persons with a dual relationship to ETH (students and employees) should obtain free student licenses for teams according to the license agreement with Microsoft. The scope of functions for teams is identical. This leads to enormous cost savings for ETH.

  3. Accept the disclaimer, select your organizational unit and pick the subscription to be added to your account –> Submit Request.
  4. Wait for the confirmation email. Please allow up to 20 minutes depending on system load.
  5. Now you are able to login at Teams: You will be redirected to the AD User Authentication Service of ETH Zurich for login. Please login with username@ethz.ch and your ETH e-mail password (Active Directory password).
