Get access to IT services, your university account and order a university card
Before your studies begin you need to get a university account and order a university card.
Activation of university account
Your university account gives you access to IT services such as wireless network. Once you have activated your account you will be able to order your university card and get access to the library resources, printing and scanning.
For international students
To activate your university account you need to visit Infocenter in Studenthuset, where you will recieve a one-time code. By international students we mean exchange students, Erasmus students, master's students etc. Please bring a photo ID or passport!
If you are a distance student and cannot visit Infocenter, please follow the instructions in Serviceportalen:
For students with a Swedish personal identity number
If you have a Swedish personal identity number, a "personnummer", and have used universityadmissions.se or antagning.se when applying to courses in Sweden, you can activate your account online.
If you need IT support, please use Serviceportalen to contact Helpdesk.
What is a T number and a ”personnummer”?
All international students are provided with a registration number from their study department. This is called a T number and is a fictive number for use within Stockholm University’s database where your courses and credits are registered. Each Swedish citizen has a personal identity number, a ”personnummer”, used in these situations. You cannot use the T number outside of the University.
For IT support, please use Serviceportalen to contact Helpdesk.
