Canvas app

Published on 12 Aug 2020

From early August students will enter their online courses in Canvas. This can be done via several ‘entrances’. Students can get access directly from the Student Portal, by login via a stand-alone URL, but also via an app on their smart phones.
The app enables to view and interact with courses, peers, tutors, teachers, and content. Staying up-to-date on your academic progress and requirements, anytime, anywhere.


When students open the app for the first time, they will see the landing page. Tap FIND MY SCHOOL and enter Maastricht University in the search field. When the full name displays in the search list, tap the name and login with your UM credentials.

After logging in, students will see their Dashboard, which displays their courses and groups. Students immediately see upcoming deadlines, announcements of the tutor or whether an assignment has been graded. We advise students to download the app from either the Apple App Store or Google Play.

The app is also available for teaching staff. What and how you can do from within the app, will be added here soon.
