Information about your studies

Student website

Information about your education, study programme and practical matters can be found on our student website: students.uu.nl. If you log in at the top right of the page, you will enter the MyUU portal, where you will find a convenient overview of your study results, schedule and study progress, amongst other things.

Studying in a safe, healthy and enjoyable way

Make sure you secure your data

The UU continuously works to improve information security. Choose a strong password and set up two-factor authentication (2FA) to gain access to our services such as OSIRIS, where you register for courses and tests.

On the student website you will find more information about IT services.

Smoke-free campuses

The UU and HU have smoke-free campuses. You are not allowed to smoke on our campus and other university property.
