Travelling to Antwerp

​Antwerp is located in the centre of Belgium and is easily accessible by plane, train, car and bus

To make it easier for you to travel to Antwerp we created a short film to give you an overview of all options to get to Antwerp. It also offers an overview of all the options to get around the city once you have arrived. You can also check out our website with all info on getting around in Antwerp.

Registration at the university

​Your registration as a student of the University of Antwerp will be done automatically as soon as you have been accepted as an exchange student in Mobility Online. Your student card and student account will be handed over to you during the orientation days. 

You will need this account to use the following services:

  • SisA selfservice module: This is the online student administration system. You can use it to:
    • Check and change your personal details
    • Check your study programme
    • Enrol on your programme components and check your course schedule
  • Webmail: You will receive a UAntwerp email address. You can check your email at https://mail.student.uantwerpen.be or through Blackboard. All communication with students is sent to the UAntwerp email address so make sure you check your UA inbox regularly!
  • Blackboard: This is your electronic learning environment. All the courses you have enrolled in are listed in Blackboard. Lecturers can upload information about their course, the PowerPoint presentation used during lectures, and so on.
  • The computers in the computer rooms.
  • The libraries and the study areas.

Can't access your student account or forgotten your password? Then contact the registrar's office through their helpdesk.  Your password will then be reset and the new student account details will be sent to your postal address (never by email) or you can pick it up from the registrar's office (you'll need to show your ID or student card).

Contact the ICT helpdesk if you have any other problems logging in to Blackboard, Webmail and so on. 

Important: your student account is only active during the academic year in which you have an enrolment.

Orientation Days

​At the beginning of each semester, all exchange students are welcomed during the Orientation Days. All you need to know about the university, living and studying in Antwerp will be explained to you. 

Because of the current worldwide Corona pandemic these orientation days will of course be different from other years. We will be moving part of the orientation days online but will combine this with on-campus activities to the extent possible. We will work hard to make your stay in Antwerp a valuable and enriching experience. We will of course keep you informed in due time about the programme, so keep in an eye on our website and check your email regularly.
