In order to access Ebsco, simply log in using your former VUnetID or your student number. After you have entered your search command in the field below, a new window will appear with ‘Klant-ID’. Enter your old VUnetID here (for example abc123) or student number (lowercase ‘s’, followed by the number, for example s123456 or s1234567). A password is not necessary.

If you have forgotten your student number or VUnetID, you can request it by sending an e-mail to: You will then receive your old student number or VUnetID via e-mail.
