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.

Important ICT services

Email at your workplace
At your workplace you will use Outlook 2010. You may also synchronise your own (mobile) device with your university email.

From your workplace you can copy and print anywhere at the university using the so-called multifunctional devices. In some cases you will need an LU Card to do this.
Remote Workplace allows you to access your university workplace using your own devices.
As a Leiden University employee you can purchase software for use at home at a discount through Surfspot.
Digital signature for PSSC forms
