steps to take • a smooth start in 1, 2, 3
Step 1 guides you through the online launch of your academic year. Once you've completed that, Step 2 steers you through the diversity of welcome activities on campus. When you've finished those, Step 3 gives you tips for a pleasant beginning of your actual classes.
stEp 1: get access
At the moment of registration, you received your UCLL student card and a scratchcard with instructions for activating your student account. Perform this activation carefully and make sure to remember your chosen password. After activating wait at least 24 hours and then enter this password and the user ID of your student card (labeled "Gebruiker") as your login data for the following essential UCLL systems:
- Access to your UCLL mailbox, where all your mail from UCLL arrives after student account activation. We do not communicate on paper, only by email to your UCLL mailbox: CHECK IT PROMPTLY at webmail.student.ucll.be and keep doing so regularly afterwards!
- Access to intranet.ucll.be, the only place online that collects all key UCLL-data like: newsflashes on your study program, your class timetable, the campus layout, your list of textbooks to buy, the who-is-who list, today's menu in the restaurant and much more.
- Access the internet via the free WIFI network Eduroam throughout the entire campus Proximus Heverlee, all other UCLL campuses and many more.
- Access to class rooms, stairways and corridors of the campus building after your student account has been activated for a whole day, by holding your student card next to the door scanners.
- Access to the campus payment system. Your student card is a payment card also. Once you've charged your student card with an amount of money on campus, you can pay with it in the library, the restaurant, at the vending machines... In short: always carry your student card with you.
