    NetID and email address

    As a new student, you must create a network identity (NetID) and a VUB email address. These enable you to access the computers on the campus and the various VUB applications.

    Activation

    You create your NetID and your VUB email address plus a password on your Personal Account Manager.

    This is done based on your student number [1] and the PIN-code [2] on your student ID card. Most likely you will receive this information per e-mail also, even before receiving your student ID card.

    Your NetID and email address are ready for use within 24 hours after completing the account request procedure. Both remain valid during your entire VUB career.

    TIP: When creating your password, pay attention to the type of keyboard you are using (AZERTY or QWERTY), whether Shift-Lock and/or the numeric keypad are active.

    Forgot your password?

    Then you can set a new password with the help of your secret question via the "Resetting the password for an existing NetID" procedure.

    Receiving VUB emails

    You will receive all official e-mails from the VUB at your VUB e-mail address. Therefore, activate your NetID, e-mail address plus password as soon as possible so you can read your VUB emails.
