As a new student at Aalborg University, you can find important information about IT at AAU on this page.
If you received your AAU email before the 6th of July 2021, your email address is also your username. For students who have received their AAU mail after this date, the following applies.
Your AAU-username is structured as follows: AAU-ID@domain.aau.dk (E.g.: email@example.com).
Never inform anyone outside of AAU about your AAU username.
AAU uses multifactor validation to access several systems including webmail, Office 365, and VPN. You are already familiar with the multifactor principle from login at, e.g., online banking, borger.dk, etc., where you are asked to enter a code from your NemID. We recommend that you set up the Microsoft Authenticator App on your mobile phone. Find the instructions here.
Note that you must be physically present on AAU to create your Authenticator. If you are unable to do this on AAU physically, please contact ITS on 9940 2020.
As a student, you will receive an AAU mail that will follow you through your studies at AAU. Your AAU mail is unique, compared to your username, and is used solely as an email address. Here you will receive all information from AAU, so remember to check your mail regularly. You can access your email through AAU webmail or via a mail client on your phone and computer. Find more instructions here.
It is important that you order your AAUCARD, as this is used to access buildings, printing, and identification for exams at AAU. Order your AAUCARD on Unistart. Remember to activate your AAUCARD here.
As a student, you must visit the website https://net.aau.dk to access AAU’s wireless network (Eduroam). Find the instructions here.
At AAU we use Moodle. On Moodle you can, among other things, see your courses and schedule. Find the link for Moodle here.
As a new student, you are allocated 100 units. You can buy more units here.
By using your student card you can print, copy, as well as scan on AAU’s copying machines. Find instructions here.
