Hasselt University cares about your privacy. We therefore make every effort to protect your personal data in accordance with all applicable privacy legislation, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679. When you apply for the statute of ‘student in special circumstances’, a file is created by the office of study coaches, which is kept in your online student file. The file is treated as confidential information. 

UHasselt needs to process your entered personal data to be able to assign your requested facilities and to organize them optimally. Only persons or services of UHasselt that are competent for the investigation and allocation of facilities can inspect your data. Your (personal) details will only be passed on to other persons/services if you have given us your explicit consent to do so or in exceptional cases (eg crisis situation) insofar as this is not in conflict with your interest. The data that you provide can also be used for statistical processing to improve the UHasselt policy on facilities. 

Your data also need to be transfered to the Flemish education administration (DHO) as the government provides financial resources for universities to make efforts to provide better guidance and support for students from so-called disadvantaged groups. 

You can always review and change your personal data. Therefore you can submit a request with the disability officer/ your study coach. 

If you think your personal data have been leaked or are used unfairly, please contact the DPO (data protection officer) of UHasselt. This can be done by e-mailing privacy@uhasselt.be.

The office of study coaches can also invite you via your UHasselt e-mail address for activities that might help you with your studies or to send you relevant information.
