UM e-mail account

Every new student receives a UM email account from Maastricht University which should be used from then on to carry out all correspondence with the university. The email account is accessible via webmail.

The advantage of webmail is that it is accessible from any location and you always have access to your email, address book and agenda.


What is possible with Webmail?

  1. Read, write, send and receive emails
  2. Delete, search and organise your emails
  3. Create filters that automatically delete emails, organise them into specific folders, or forward them
  4. Organise your agenda
  5. Search for email addresses
  6. Synchronise with your mobile device


Log into webmail

Go to: http://webmail.maastrichtuniversity.nl

Log into webmail Maastricht University


Now and then you encounter an alternate log in window which requires you to log in using "UNIMAAS\i-number" and your password. If you omit the "UNIMAAS\" before your i-number, you can not log in.

UM Card

After completing your registration with Maastricht University (UM) for the first time and issuing the university with all required documents, you will receive a UM card.

The UM Card is your university ID and copy card, and gives access to certain UM buildings and facilities, including the University Library. See the brochure (in Dutch, pdf 439 Kb) for more information about the chipknip and UM Card.
