As a result of the cyber attack on the UvA and AUAS, it is important that all staff and students change their UvAnetID password. Are you one of the 26,000 people who have already changed their password? There’s no need to do it again. Thank you for acting so quickly!


From 3 March, your current password will no longer work and you will only be able to log in after you’ve changed it. If you have tests to write, make sure to change your password beforehand. After this date, your password will expire and you will no longer have access to systems. You will then have to go through a more difficult procedure to get a new password.


To change your password, go to:

If you have any questions about changing your password or if you want assistance, please contact the service desk of ICT Services. This is available daily from 7:00 to 22:00, including on the weekend of Saturday, 27 February and Sunday, 28 February.

T: (+31) 020 525 1402

As of today, all staff and students who have not yet changed their password will receive reminder emails. It is very important that everyone changes their password in the coming days.

In the meantime, we’re continuing to work hard to investigate and repair the consequences of the cyber attack. The investigation is at an advanced stage. All systems are online and can be used, and there is very limited disruption to education and research.
