Registering a new account

To register an account, follow these steps:

  1. Go to and log in using your Central KU Leuven Account.
  2. Select the kind of account you wish to register:
    • Most people will want to register a regular account for personal use.
    • If you are a recognised faculty union (kring), assembly organisation (overkoepelende organisatie), or faculty consultative body (facultair overlegorgaan) you are entitled to a free account. You can use the following to verify if you are eligible:
    • If you are a recognised organisation by LOKO, the KU Leuven or another relevant entity, you may be entitled to an organisation account, which has a reduced price. You can use the following to verify if you are eligible:
      • The list of associations (vrije verenigingen) recognised by LOKO.
      • The list of recognised cultural organisations by the KU Leuven Culture Committee.
      • If you are a daughter organisation of one or multiple faculty unions (kringen), for example a fakbar.
      • Sports organisations recognised by the University Sports Centre can get in contact with us directly with proof of their recognition, as the USC currently doesn't publish any lists.
      • KU Leuven research groups. Please email us on with a link to your faculty/department's list of research groups.
      • Organisations recognised by their faculty as an (optional) part of the curriculum and that have a permanent character. For example the teams of the Postgraduate Tech Innovations in Ventures & Teams at Group T.
      • We do not recognise the organisations recognised by the General Bureau (GeBu) of the KU Leuven.
      • If your organisation is recognised by some other entity not listed here, feel free to send us more details on and we will review your particular situation.
    • If you are a campus council or an organisation not part of campus Leuven, such as the councils and organisations listed on , then you are not eligible for any reduced fee accounts, but you are free to register a personal account. If you are a campus council, you can also reach out to us on to discuss subsidising reduced fee access for the organisations of your campus.
  3. After picking your account type you have to choose which options you want, as well as a username and a language.
  4. Accept the ULYSSIS terms of use and confirm your order.
  5. An email will be sent to your KU Leuven email address to confirm your order alongside a request for payment.
  6. As soon as we have received and processed your payment, your account will be activated and you will receive instructions to set a password.
