Confidential advisor & Ombuds Officer

UM does not tolerate any type of undesirable behaviour. If you do encounter any issues, you can take them to a Confidential Advisor or our Ombuds Officer. A Confidential Advisor deals specifically with undesirable behaviour and is there to monitor your interests. The Ombuds Officer is there in case of legal issues, is impartial and independent and has both the right to information and power of investigation.

Local Consultative Body

The Local Consultative Body (LO) consists of trade union representatives and members of the university's Executive Board. They meet regularly to discuss employment-related subjects.

Alumni Relations/Alumni Office


Graduated from or attained your PhD at Maastricht University? We welcome you in our Alumni Community; a global network of more than 80,000 graduates. Out of sight does not mean out of mind, on the contrary! We would like to keep in touch with you.

Through our Alumni Circles in the Netherlands, Europe and beyond you stay connected to your old university, keep in touch with fellow alumni, and expand your professional network. We like to welcome you at one of our many events.

Staff Career Centre

The Staff Career Centre supports all employees of Maastricht University in the areas of learning, development, mobility and participation. Your sustainable employability is our primary goal. The starting point for learning, development and mobility is a meeting between you and your manager or HR advisor. In that meeting, you prepare a personal development plan (POP) that can lead to a development process in which the Staff Career Centre can help you.

Occupational Health and Safety

Every UM employee deserves decent working conditions. That is why we make sure we follow the rules set out in the Occupational Health and Safety Act. As an employee, you have responsibilities too. Specially appointed prevention officers help you prevent or solve any problems.

Studio Europa

Studio Europa Maastricht is a centre of expertise for Europe-related debate and research founded in 2018 and supported by the partners of the Maastricht, Working on Europe programme: Maastricht University, the Province of Limburg and the City of Maastricht. Together we aim to position Maastricht, the capital of Limburg, as a meeting place for citizen dialogue and debate and establish a centre of excellence for research on Europe and European integration.
