Self-service university account

You receive a Tilburg University account and a password the moment you enter into the employ of the university or when you register as a student. Only when you change this password in the self-service will you have access to a large number of the university's digital services.

Please note: a number of applications do not use the university username/password combination. When you change your university password via the self-service these passwords will remain unchanged. Examples of these applications are: Planon, SAP and xFlow.
