UM email account
Every new student receives a UM e-mail account from Maastricht University which should be used from then on to carry out all correspondence with the university. The e-mail account is accessible via webmail.
The advantage of webmail is that it is accessible from any location and you always have access to your e-mail, address book and agenda.
What is possible with webmail?
- Read, write, send and receive emails
- Delete, search and organize your emails
- Create filters that automatically delete emails, organize them into specific folders, or forward them
- Organize your agenda
- Search for email addresses
- Synchronize with your mobile device
After completing your registration with Maastricht University (UM) for the first time and issuing the university with all required documents, you will receive a UMcard.
The UMcard is your university ID and copy card, and gives access to certain UM buildings and facilities, including the University Library. Visit the webpages of our facility services or see the brochure for more information.
Certificate of Registration Maastricht University
If you have met all registration requirements and you are officially registered as a student at Maastricht University (UM), you will receive a Certificate of Registration from UM. The certificate shows your personal details, study programme information and the exact period that you are registered as a student at UM. Each year you will receive a new Certificate of Registration.
It may happen that a company such as a housing agency, sports club, bank or insurance company needs to see your Certificate of Registration to check if you are registered as a student this academic year. In certain situations UM could also ask for your Certificate of Registration, for example during examinations (this varies by study programme).
You can apply for additional copies of the Certificate (free of charge) at the Information Desk of the Student Services Centre (SSC):
+ 31 43 388 5 388
Or alternatively, you can visit our Information Desk at the Visitors’Centre: Bonnefantenstraat 2.
