AUAS ID and password

Everyone who is a student at the AUAS receives an AUAS ID. This is the username that, in combination with your password, grants you access to the AUAS's ICT facilities.

Your AUAS ID is stated in the welcome letter you were sent by email after you enrolled at the AUAS.

Important: It is only possible to activate your account or reset your password by using a laptop/computer. Mobile phones and tablets do not work.

In order to activate your account or change your password, please go to and follow these steps:
1. Click on Activate my account or I forgot my password;
2. Enter your HvA-ID and click on Proceed;
3. On the next screen, enter your Date of Birth and your Private E-mail address that you used to register at
4. Check the box "I agree with the ICT code of conduct" and click on Proceed;
5. Go to your private e-mail address and check whether you have received an e-mail or SMS with an Activation Code (NOTE: the code expires after 2 hours!);
6. Open the URL from your e-mail/SMS and enter your HvA-ID and click on Proceed; then fill in the Activation Code and click on Proceed;
7. Enter a new password that meets the requirements (twice).

What do I use my AUAS ID for?

You need your AUAS ID to log in to the AUAS's ICT facilities, including the wireless network, computer workstations, email, BSCW, SIS, Digital Portfolio, your degree programme's intranet and SURFspot.

Important to know

  • Your AUAS ID is not your student ID number.
  • Your AUAS ID is personal, unique and non-transferable.
  • Never share your AUAS ID with anyone. AUAS staff will never ask you for your password.
