My Radboud account
Your Radboud account is a unique account that, in combination with your password and (sometimes) multi factor authentication, allows you to access the university's systems.
When you start studying or working at Radboud University you will get a Radboud account. You will receive a proposal for your Radboud-account name. At that point you can agree or change it if necessary. Preferably use your own name and not your partner's name.
Your Radboud account and your Radboud email address are the same: firstname.lastname@example.org*.
Activate your Radboud account
To activate your Radboud account you will receive an email to your external (private) email address**. This mail will explain how to activate your Radboud account. The activation code is valid for a short period of time and will be used to create your personal password.
