Identity card

Before you can start your program, the university is legally obliged to establish your identity on the basis of a valid ID. In most cases, proof of ID is automatically exchanged with DUO, but there are situations in which you have to provide identification yourself. This is one of those situations.

Action to be taken by student:

Make a copy of your passport or the front and back of your ID card; whichever document you choose, make sure that it is still valid (on or after the first day of the start of your program). All of your first names should be listed. If that is not the case, obtain an extract from the registry of births in which all of your first names are written out in full and enclose the original extract with the copy of your ID. Please note that a copy of another type of ID (e.g. your driving license) will not suffice.


Deposit a copy (or copies) in the white mailbox of the Student Desk at the reception of Academia Building. Opening hours on working days from 8.30AM-5.30PM. You can also send it by mail to:  Tilburg University, Student Desk, P.O. Box 90153, 5000 LE Tilburg.
