Username and password

All staff and students at Aalborg University will be given their own account which provides access to the various services offered by AAU. The name of the account and your username are identical. Read more about 2-step authentication.


Student accounts are automatically created, and the account name is a combination of your initials followed by your year of enrolment.

All students belong to the subdomain student.aau.dk.


If you are a staff member, a secretary at your unit/department will create your account; your username will be created on the basis of your name, and in some units/departments you will be asked to decide your own username.

Your email address will be username@department.aau.dk.


When your affiliation to the University stops, you will receive this message:

If you believe that the deactivation of your account is a mistake, you must contact your secretary immediately.

If you fail to react, your account will be deactivated within 14 days after you having received this message, and after an additional 14 days, your account will be deleted.


A default password will be connected to your username. You must change this password when accessing the University systems for the first time.
