There are a few ways to activate your account:

  • Online with one of the options on
  • 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
    Box 408
    S-541 28 Skövde Sweden

    You can also scan the signed application and e-mail it to

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.
