Every member of staff at Leiden University is given a ULCN account. You can use this ULCN account to log in to your computer, the wifi network and various other ICT systems.
Applying for an account
When you start work at the university, you will automatically receive an email or letter with your ULCN log-in details. You do not need to apply for an account yourself. You will receive your account details at the correspondence address or the (non-university) email address that you will have given to the staff administration department.
After receiving the letter or email, you cannot immediately use your account. Depending on the letter that you receive, you first have to activate your account or change your password. You also need to set your account in the right way so that you can manage your account in future without the intervention of a helpdesk.
Applying for an account for a guest or external
Do you have a guest who only requires limited ICT facilities? If so, you can apply for an ULCN account via your GMS-contact person. If your guest or external visitor needs more facilities, such as access to network drives, you have to request for a guest account via the Service portal.
Retaining your account if you leave the university
You can make use of your account for 90 days before starting employment up to 60 days after ending your appointment. If you wish to use your account for longer (for example after your pension date), your manager needs to request for a guest account via the Service portal.
