Digital tools and services
Here is a collection of links to study support systems and the most important IT services for students at Stockholm University.
Athena is the main collaboration platform for courses at Stockholm University. Please note that a few departments might be using other platforms such as iLearn.
Most departments at the university uses the university’s scheduling system TimeEdit. Please note that a few departments do not use TimeEdit. Should the schedule you are interested in be unavailable within four weeks prior to the course’s introduction, please contact the department in charge.
Your university account is how Stockholm University students access IT services. This includes WiFi, computer rooms, cloud based storage and more.
University account is the user name and password that are the login to a number of services at the University.
Keep your email address up to date
When you activate your university account you add your email address. This address is connected to your SU email address (your university account user id followed by firstname.lastname@example.org). This is the address that Stockholm University uses to contact you during your studies. Make sure you keep your address up to date so you won’t miss relevant information from your teachers etc. To check and update your address go to Kontohantering.
Use your university account to log in to the wireless network.
University card is your library card and printing/copy card. Unless you're physically on campus you don't need the university card. If you're an international student you can order your card if/when you arrive in Sweden (it can only be sent to an address within Sweden)
You can order your university card after you have activated your university account.
If you lose your card you must block it to prevent others from using it.
Block your old card and order a new one
Please note: The Campus Card that can be used for student discounts is administered by the Stockholm University Student Union.
Completed courses and study certificates
In Ladok you will find record of current and completed education.
The easiest way to obtain a study certificate is to create one yourself by logging in to your university account at Ladok.
Certificates can be created for studies at Stockholm University, and as a national study certificate that includes studies at several Swedish universities.
However, if you need a study certificate with a stamp and a signature from Stockholm University exclusively, you can order this by logging in to Serviceportalen (click on Requests, Infocenter / Student Services and select the type of certificate requested).
If you do not have access to your university account you can order a study certificate by contacting Infocenter. Please specify if you want an Official Transcript of Records and/or a Certificate of Registration, if it should be in Swedish and/or in English, and if you want it to be sent digitally and/or by regular post (if so, please specify to which address it should be sent).
