As a new staff member, you will be issued an UvAnetID and password by your designated P&O adviser. Your UvAnetID provides access to ICT facilities including:
• the UvA network;
• UvA mail (webmail);
• the UvA workstation;
• Digital Library;
• UvA VPN;
• Self-Service Tool, which can be used to e.g. apply for leave;
• Terms of Employment Menu;
Staff who are not directly employed by UvA, such as temporary, seconded and external staff, are eligible for a UvAnetID. However, they are not allowed to use things such as SURFspot.nl, the Self-Service tool and the Terms of Employment Menu.
Your UvAnetID is personal, unique and non-transferable. UvA will never ask for your password; as such, you should never reveal your UvAnetID password to others. Furthermore, your UvAnetID password must be changed once per year. Your UvAnetID will cease to be valid three months after you leave UvA.
On id.uva.nl, you can inspect your personal details, edit your password and set up an email alias (i.e., a forwarding email address). You must activate your UvAnetID before being able to use it. To this end, an email containing an activation code will be sent to the private email address you have provided.
Several UvA systems use a two-step verification procedure. We call this two-step verification. In addition to entering your UvAnetID and password, you will have to use another authentication method, also known as a ‘token’.
All UvAnetID users must observe the ICT Code of Conduct.
