Retiring soon?

If you plan on retiring soon, you can register as a pensioned employee of Radboud University. By registering, you can continue to use certain facilities as a pensioner. Some of these facilities are linked to your campus card. 


  • You will receive discounts for Radboud Sports Centre
  • You can continue to enjoy the same loan facilities at the University Library. Note: If you do not use your library account for more than a year, it will automatically expire. You can reactivate your account at RUQuest.
  • You can become/remain a member of the Staff Association (PV) and Radboud Seniors. The first year of membership is free for pensioned employees who are not PV members.


If you would like to register, go to the account portal. Registration is possible three months before your contract ends up to and including your contract’s end date.
