You can also customize your desktop to add other useful widgets (email, schedule, news, library catalogue, ...).
This magnetic card will be useful for accessing the libraries, didactic rooms, parking lots... Send us a photo (passport type) from the front, on a white background, so that we can make your access card. This photo will be used throughout your stay at UCLouvain, especially for your student card.
It takes several days to make your access card, so please remember to do this before the start of the school year. The card will be sent to the postal address you provided on your registration form.
Before the start of the school year, checkthe schedule of your programme regularly to find out about the welcome sessions organized by your faculty, and any changes in schedule or premises.
It is also possible to build your own schedule using the "Schedule" widget available on My UCL once you have made your choices regarding the courses you're going to take.

Once your registration at UCLouvain has been confirmed (you will receive an e-mail), you can fill in your PAE (Annual Student Program) based on your first courses and the information provided by your faculty:
If your Bachelor's degree offers you the opportunity to take a minor or if your Master's program has options, don't forget to register for the minors or options before you register for classes.
