The Helen Kattan Computer Center has developed Ritaj- BZU Academic Portal- to stand strong as an internationally recognized University. All BZU members who carry a valid BZU ID number are eligible for Ritaj services. When you call for support, please be prepared to provide your civil ID number (Haweyyah) to Ritaj personnel for identity confirmation purposes.

New students usually get their passwords from the registrar office only the first time they register at Birzeit University; afterwards they can get help from Ritaj lab supervisor at ext.2995 housed in the Kamal Nasir Building, while new faculty members can get their accounts activated by the help desk supervisor at ext.2012.

Part-time employees need to call or stop by the Human Resources department to get a BZU ID number that is valid on Ritaj and then give that number to the help desk supervisor.

Ritaj has a very user friendly and simple looking interface, it is very easy to navigate as well. Through Ritaj, BZU students can register their classes, exchange memos, receive course messages from their instructors, search the library books, read their course contents, look up their grades and QPA, and stay updated on their academic and financial records.

On the other hand, instructors can exchange memos with their students and other members, post course contents, send course messages to students, search library books and stay updated on their personal financial records. There is also a new feature on Ritaj that allow some faculty members to reserve certain classrooms at campus for different purposes called "Room Reservation System".
