Canvas is the digital learning environment to support the UvA's regular teaching activities. Students can use Canvas to access all teaching materials, articles, assignments and messages for the courses they are taking. Canvas also makes it easier for students and lecturers to communicate with one another in a course-specific context.

Logging in and accessing your courses

You can log into Canvas using your UvAnetID. After you have registered for your course(s), you will automatically be granted access in Canvas to the course(s) for which you have registered.

Tip: download the Canvas Student app from the app store (iOS) or play store (Android).
