Good ICT resources are crucial for having a smooth working environment at your new place of employment. Here we briefly explain what you need and where you can find the most important ICT services.

A complete overview of important ICT services can be found on the ICT page. Some of them are explained below.

Your ULCN account

Every Leiden University employee is given a ULCN account. You use this account to log into your PC, the Wi-Fi network and various other ICT systems. When you start working for the university, you will automatically receive an e-mail message or letter with your ULCN login information. You do not need to request an account. More information about ULCN >>

Important ICT services

  • Office 365
    Office 365 allows you to access your university workplace from any location with your own devices.
  • Working from home
    Do you need access from home to your programmes and files? Please use the university’s Webmail, Office 365 and OneDrive.
  • Email at your workplace
    At your workplace you will use Outlook. You may also synchronise your own (mobile) device with your university email.

Do you have questions about or problems with your university workstation? You can find a lot of ICT information on the Helpdesk Portal.
