Activating your Campus License/Trial: Email Verification

There are three methods that AMBOSS uses to deliver Campus License access. If you know that your university has an AMBOSS Campus License or Trial where all students and faculty are eligible to participate by verifying your email address, you can activate your access by following these steps in your AMBOSS account. 

  1. Create an AMBOSS account, or, if you already have one, log in to your existing AMBOSS account. Once logged in, click Account & settings > Activate Institutional License on the left-side menu.


  2. Select your university under the Select your institution field in the top half of the following page and then select the green Activate License button.Screen_Shot_2022-12-13_at_1.13.15_PM.png
  3. Enter your institutional email into the field that appears below your university, and select the Activate License button again. The instructions on which email address to provide will be shown on the authentication page once you try to join your school’s Campus License from the dropdown. Leave the bottom half of the page empty – this is not relevant to your type of Campus License. 
  4. A message will then be sent to the institutional email you submitted. Click the link within that message to verify that you are the owner of your email. Then you're all set to begin studying! 

If you run into any issues with this process, please feel free to contact the AMBOSS Support or leave us a message here and we'll help you as soon as we can.

A few things to keep in mind: 

  • The exact instructions for the authentication process can vary from university to university, depending on how your school works with remote access to the campus network (proxy, VPN, Single Sign-On).
  • To ensure that you still belong to the university, it is necessary to log into AMBOSS from time to time. If you are logged out for longer than a period of days (can range from 30 to longer), you may be asked to complete the authentication steps again. 

** It is not possible to activate this type of Campus License on a mobile device. You must do so on the desktop version of the platform.
