On your programme pages you will find all the information you need to study well:

  • study programme (courses, internship, study abroad, thesis)
  • support (student advisor, career services, skills lab)
  • practical information (course registration, your schedule, year calendar)


Below, we highlight some topics that you can also find on your programmes pages! Are you an international student? You'll find additional information at the bottom of this page. 

Digital student card, MyUU app, Solis-id and -mail

All students enrolled at UU receive a digital student card. This can be found in the MyUU app. The MyUU app has everything in one place: your timetable, grades and your student card. You log in with your Solis-id.

Every student has a Solis-mail address. This address has been sent to your private email address (during your registration). Read more on Solis-mail on the IT facilities page (> university email). 

Support, wellbeing and advice

We offer various forms of support, within your studies, but also on wellbeing.

Studying with a disability

Utrecht University wants to ensure that all students feel welcome and receive the support they need to make the most of their studies. If you have any questions about studying with a disability, or applying for adjustments or accommodations, feel free to contact your study advisor. It is important get in touch as soon as possible, to ensure that there is enough time to make the necessary arrangements.
