HU mail

All students get a personal email address of the HU after their enrolment. With this, you can, among others, communicate with your lecturers and fellow-students. It gives you access to HU systems and your HU mail. You can open your HU e-mailbox via myHU.



myHU is a dashboard app where you’ll find the most essential information related to your studies. The myHU interface consists of tiles. Each tile has its own theme: grades, timetables, notification of teacher’s absence, e-mail, course information and news. Log in to myHU with your HU email address and password.

As a student, you will find that you will follow the same educational cycle for each part of your studies. You will choose to enrol in certain courses, minors, specialisations, etc. To do so, you will be supported by your study career coach. Eventually, you will be examined on what you have learnt – which will give you credits towards your study progress.
