How to make a Onegini account

If you don't have a home institution connected to SURFconext, you can use a Onegini account to log on to multiple services of SURFconext as a guest.

There are two different ways to register an account with Onegini:

  1. Register an account with an existing social account (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Google). No extra username and password has to be remembered.
  2. Register a Onegini account with a new username and password.

Register a Onegini account with a social account

1. Go to

2. Select the social account you want to register with (from left to right: Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Twitter).

The login page of the selected account will appear. Below you see an example of a Facebook login page.

3. Log in with your Facebook credentials and click Log In.

The next page tells you what information Onegini has access to.

If you select LinkedIn, LinkedIn will ask you for permission to share your profile photo with Onegini. SURFconext and Onegini do not use your profile photo! Unfortunately we are unable to dismiss this message.

4. Click OK.


5. Fill in the required fields and click Create.

Next time you visit a service of SURFconext as a guest you can use your social account to log in.

Register a Onegini account without social account

1. Go to

2. click 'here' (in "Click here if you prefer not to use a third party account")

3. click Register here.
4. Fill out the required fields and click Sign up to make a Onegini account. If you prefer not to use your

cell phone, click more info... to enable extra security via a PIN code.

If your Onegini account has been successfully registered you will be redirected to your personal Onegini dashboard page.

A social account can always be added by selecting the '+' at the top-right of your dashboard panel.

You will still have to confirm your mail address.

Confirm your e-mail address

After registering with Onegini your mail does not automatically get added to your profile. This will only happen after confirmation by the user. Since e-mail is necessary for many services, confirming immediately could be handy.

  1.  Go to your personal page using the button 'Personal Info' (1) on top of the page.
  2. Click Verify (2) behind the field that states 'Mail Address'
  3. Go to your mailbox, find the mail and click 'Verify email address'


The mail sometimes ends up in your spam folder.
