User ID

KU.CardWhen enrolling at the KU, every student receives a user ID which enables them to use most of the University’s online services.

The letter you receive upon enrollment or which is sent to you by post contains your user ID. The letter also contains an activation password with which you can activate your user ID. It is also printed on your KU.Card, which can thus also be used as user ID card in addition to its other functions.

 

The user ID is valid from the day of enrollment and must be activated using the activation password.  When activating your user ID, you will also have to give your consent to the use and processing of personal data. If you do not give your consent, we cannot process and manage your study data, which would make studying at the KU impossible.
