Welcome at the University of twente

Start here with the checklist of ICT services for employees. 

Account

  • Activate your account / change or forgot your password?

  • Multi-factor authentication

    Security management of the University of Twente periodically evaluates the way users get authenticated to IT resources and implements improvements if necessary. As a result of measures we have to take for the ever-increasing cyber threats and privacy protection, it has been decided, in consultation with the organization, to introduce Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). Click here for the manuals and FAQ.

Workstation

  • Workstation @UT

    Windows 10 is the standard of the UT workstation (desktop and notebook). As a result of the user being the administrator on the computer it is possible to install software yourself. LISA provides several services like the installation of Windows 10 and some of the logon services. We also provide the required level of security regarding the workstation. Click here for more information about workstations.

    Note: When you log in to a UT workstation for the first time, make sure you are connected to the wired UT network or the eduroam (wireless) network first.

Software

Connect

    Eduroam (education roaming) enables students, researchers and other members of staff to use their education or research institute’s wireless (wifi) network in a safe manner. Click here for the manuals.

    You can use Teams to invite your colleagues to chat, meet, call and work together. This can all be done in one place, wherever you are. Click here for more information and manuals.

  • Cyber Safety UT

    LISA is responsible for the security of the UT-managed workstations. Defender and Bitlocker are examples of applications meant to secure the computer. Defender is the anti-virus and anti-malware software. Bitlocker is the encryption of the system drive of the computer to prevent a data leak in case of computer loss. More information: Cyber Safety.

Apps

  • Mazemap

    Don't get lost @UT, download the MazeMap app!

  • Campus Crowd app

    To support our staff and students if they have to get to campus, we have been working on a CampusCrowdMap. You can use the map to find out which places are currently crowded and which are not. The crowd map is based on the number of devices connected to the Eduroam and Enschede_Stad_van_Nu Wi-Fi networks. No personal data will be stored. CampusCrowdMap provides an estimate that helps you decide which places are safe and which should be avoided.

  • UT campus app

    FIND YOUR WAY AROUND THE UNIVERSITY OF TWENTE.

    The Campus app guides you to your meeting, the parking spot closest to your appointment or any other outdoors point of interest. As a student of the University of Twente, the app also shows you your timetable information. Don’t have a meeting on the campus yet? Don’t worry, the Campus app allows you to explore the campus, see and join upcoming events or post on the message board. If you’re already here, you can even see which events are happening near you right now!
