TU/e usernames/relation numbers

The TU/e uses one central relation number which can be used as a username for most TU/e services. To become a member of GEWIS or to renew your enrollment (when you never supplied your username before), you must provide your TU/e username to GEWIS. It will be compared against the name known to GEWIS and a verification is done with the TU/e systems to check whether you are studying at the department of M&CS.

A TU/e username has the format YYYYxxxx (where YYYY is the year you first started studying at TU/e). If you started before 2016, you will have a sYYxxxx username where YY are the last two digits of the year you started. If you have been studying continuously since 2001, your username can also be a variation of your name.

If you do not want to provide your TU/e username to GEWIS, you can submit other proof of enrollment that specifies that you are studying at M&CS such as a statement of enrollment issued by ESA or CSA.

Please note: GEWIS does not need your TU/e password to verify you are studying. Never send your password to GEWIS (or anyone else).

 

To lookup your username, use any of the methods below:

How can I find my username (TU/e laptop)?

Are you using a TU/e laptop and are you signed in to your account? Simply hit CTRL+ALT+DEL, click on "Change a password" and you will see your username.

How can I find my username (new student)?

When you enrolled for TU/e, you have received an email from noreplyesa@tue.nl with the subject "Welcome to Eindhoven University of Technology". It contains your student email address, your username and your initial password. Look for the 2022-number in this email. This is your username.

How can I find my username (in Canvas)?

In Canvas, click your profile photo and go to "Settings". There you will find a list called "Ways to log in", usually filled with 3 usernames. You are looking for an 8 digit ID starting with your TU/e generation (when you first started studying at TU/e). This is your TU/e username.
