Obtaining your user account
Once you have been admitted to a course or a program at the University of Skövde, you need to activate your user account. Note that there is a delay between the admittance system and the account system - you may have to wait until the next day until your account can be activated.
There are a few ways to activate your account:
- On the "activate user account" site You need your Swedish Civic registration number and the e-mail address you used when you applied to the University. Your registration number is printed on your letter of acceptance and looks like this: YYYYMMDD-LNNN (f ex 19950205-T436). NB! If you have a Microsoft email (live, hotmail or outlook), you might not retrieve your account information. Please use one of the following services to activate your account.
- On the "manage account" site (requires Swedish BankID)
- By visiting IT Helpdesk at the school. Remember to bring photo identification.
- By sending an application. Fill out the account application form, sign it and mail it to:
IT Services Office
User account application
S-541 28 Skövde Sweden
You can also scan the signed application and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember that you need to register for your courses in order to be fully activated! You can register for courses here in the Studentportalen, under My Studies, once you have activated your account.
Note that it will take up to two hours before you can log in to the learning platform Canvas after activating an account.
