How do I create a Cirrus account?

If you are an employee with an U-account or an E-account it is possible to create your own account in Cirrus. To do so you have to fill out a request in the RU Accountportal. Read more about how this works below.

This is what you have to do to set up your own Cirrus account:

  2. Enter your credentials
  3. Click Inloggen ("Log in").
  • Click on Een nieuwe aanvraag starten ("Start a new request").
