This page provides all the information you will need at the start of the academic year.
Your AUAS ID and password grant you access to AUAS ICT facilities. Your AUAS ID is stated in the welcome letter you were sent by email after you enrolled. To activate your AUAS ID, go to id.student.hva.nl. Simply click on the 'Activate account' link and follow the instructions. Have you done that? Log in to your AUAS mailbox. Be sure to regularly check this inbox to ensure you don't miss any important information. Log in at email.hva.nl using your AUAS ID@hva.nl (note the extension @hva.nl) and password.
Have you paid your tuition fees yet and made all further steps required to finalise your enrolment? You cannot start your degree programme this September unless you have completed all the required steps. Once you have received your proof of enrolment (by email to your AUAS email address) you can be sure that your enrolment has been finalised.
Every student is issued with a student ID card. This will allow you to print, borrow books, pay at vending machines, identify yourself for tests, etc. To apply for your student ID card, simply upload your passport photo via www.mijnhvapas.nl. This will require you to enter your AUAS ID, sent to you by email. You will receive your student ID card at the end of August.
If your student ID card is sent to your home address, you will need to activate it (once only) at one of the Service Points in the AUAS buildings. To activate your student ID card you must be able to present a valid proof of identity. Once you have activated your student ID card you can use it to print, borrow books, pay at vending machines, identify yourself for tests, etc.
N.B. If you are an international student, your student ID card will not be sent to your home address. It will be ready for you to collect from the Service Point.

The academic year commences on Monday, 28 August, starting with an introduction week. Your first lectures will follow. Group lists will be published during the introduction week.
Once you have your group list, you will be able to view your schedule at https://rooster.hva.nl. You can link your schedule to calendar applications such as Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple Calendar or the calendar application in your mobile phone. Go to the AUAS annual schedule to find out how the academic year is structured and when the holiday periods are scheduled.
Every day's study begins with MijnHvA. Here you can log in with your AUAS ID and find your schedule, all you need to know about your courses, your grades and any messages from your lecturers. If a lecturer will be absent, you will be notified via MijnHvA. You will also find an A-Z list of practical information for your programme including such things as ICT, facilities, regulations and supervision.
All AUAS students can obtain fast and secure access to the internet via the ‘hva’ or ‘eduroam’ network which, in turn, allows access to all information systems. To obtain access to the network you will be required to complete a number of steps once only. Once you have done that you will always connect automatically at all AUAS locations.
