    PointCarré is the digital learning platform of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Here, professors publish messages and study material and you can communicate with fellow students and professors.

    Course space

    The day after you register your courses via the Student SelfService, you will see the boxes appear on PointCarré. You can then check by subject, whether there are posts, and whether the new course material is available.

    Not all courses registered yet?

    If your courses are not registered yet, you can check the course space and subscribe for the courses. So, while you are waiting for your courses to be registered, you can already have access to the course material and the announcements.

    CAUTION: Subscribing to a course only on Pointcarré does not mean that your courses are registered officially. You can only register your courses officially on the Student SelfService!

    How to log in?

    Go to pointcarre.vub.ac.be and log in with your NetID and password.

    Canvas replaces PointCarré

    Starting from next academic year (2018-2019) PointCarré will be replaced by a new learning platform: Canvas. During the course free week (17/09/2018 - 23/09/2018) we will shut down PointCarré and load all student accounts into Canvas. From then on you will no longer be able to log into PointCarré, but Canvas will be available instead.

    Note: are there any personal documents on PointCarré you would like to keep (eg portfolio, repository,…)? Make sure you download those files before the course free week.
