A public register
The University of Skövde is a Swedish agency and as such is subject to the principle of openness. The basic principle is that all information about the students in Ladok is public as well as corresponding information registered in another way. Disclosure of information must, however, take place in a controlled manner and in accordance with relevant laws and local rules.

Change contact information
Ladok picks up your address from the Swedish population register if you have a Swedish identification number (personnummer), but you can also add another contact address in the University of Skövde's Studentportal. The address you enter will apply to all universities where you are a student.
Swedish population register
Every week, Ladok collects information on population registration addresses from the Swedish Tax Agency. The population registration address and names that have been added or changed in the population register during the past week are then automatically transferred to Ladok. If you have entered an address other than the population registration address, that address will not be changed.
If your population registration address or name does not match Ladok, contact the Swedish Tax Agency to check that your information is correct there. Only the first name that is marked as a given name at the Swedish Tax Agency is retrieved.
Email and phone number
As a student at the University of Skövde, you have access to a student e-mail that is the same as your student account followed by @student.his.se. While you are a student, the University communicates primarily via your student e-mail. You need to regularly check your student email or forward it to another e-mail so as not to miss important information. The student e-mail will still be used even if you enter another e-mail in Studentportalen/Ladok.
In the University of Skövde's student portal, you can enter the e-mail address and telephone number you want to be contacted at in addition to the student e-mail. If you have not studied at an university before, the e-mail address you provided when registering at antagning.se/universityadmissions.se will be in Ladok. If you have studied at another university before, the same e-mail address you had then will remain.
Even if you are a student at several different universities at the same time, you only have one e-mail address in Ladok. Check that you have the correct e-mail in our student portal.
