Do I need a UGent account to register?

After your registration, you will receive an email from to activate your UGent account. We recommend to do that as soon as possible in order to have your own username and password from Ghent University. You will need this information for your course.

You log in via Multi-factor authentication (MFA). Activate this before logging in.


This account will remain active in the academic year of your course and the following academic year to allow you to register for another course. If you are having difficulty with your account, please contact the ICT helpdesk of Ghent University
