AAUcard and IT-systems

  • +


    At Aalborg University, your AAUcard is more than a student ID. The card works as an access card to university buildings in Aalborg, Esbjerg and Copenhagen, also outside regular opening hours. The card is also your library card to Aalborg University Library (AUB), and can give you discounts on purchases in selected stores in most major Danish cities.

    When you have been admitted, you can find your AAU email address in UniStart as well as its password. 

    From now on, all communication from Aalborg University to you will be sent to your AAUmail. It is important that you login to your AAUmail to check whether you have received essential information about your study programme.

    Your AAUmail is auto-generated, and cannot be altered.
