Welcome to the Canvas support portal


In this portal you will find information on Canvas, Maastricht University’s learning management system. All students and teachers have access to Canvas.

Canvas offers an online platform to support education. Each course in the UM curriculum has a course site in Canvas to make content available and to facilitate communication and collaboration. Furthermore, Canvas offers functionality for testing, handing in papers, originality checks on papers, discussion boards etc.

Next to a direct login page (use the button), students can access their courses in Canvas via the Student Portal.

At the bottom of this page we also redirect you to related websites and portals.
