NetID and VUB e-mail address

The VUB network (VUBnet) grants you access to the Internet. Before you can use the VUBnet you must activate your network identity (NetID and password) and create a VUB e-mail address.


You can activate your NetID and create your VUB e-mail address on your Personal Account Manager.

This is done based on your enrolment number [1] and the PIN-code [2] on your student ID card. Most likely you will receive this information per e-mail also, even before receiving your student ID card.

You will receive your NetID and e-mail address within 24 hours of completing the account request procedure.

TIP: When creating your password, pay attention to the type of keyboard you are using (AZERTY or QWERTY), whether Shift- Lock and/or the numeric keypad are active
