Start Single Sign On

Log in with your account once and get access to multiple applications.

The introduction of Account Self Service  is the start of the Single Sign On environment of Leiden University. Single Sign On allows you to access multiple applications, after logging in only once in with your ULCN account. You can switch from one application to another without having to login again.


The Sigle Sign On environment of Leiden University is called: uAccess. The following internal applications are available with uAccess:

Single Sign On is also applicable for the external application supported by SURFconext. Some exampls out of the list of available services by SURF are:
  • Ebsco
  • Ellips
  • SURFmedia
  • SURFspot
Also read the webpage with available applications at the start page of uAccess.
The principle of one-time login only applies for applications that are connected to uAccess. Applications like Blackboard and uSis are not yet connected to uAccess.

Check at Account Self Service

For each login attempt uAccess will check whether you have completed your profile information and security responses and if your password will expire soon. If applicable, you will be directed to Account Self Service first to update your profile information, setup your security responses and change your password. After updating this information you will be redirected to the original application for which you had to log in uAccess.
