Practical Information

UpUnet-S Account

At the department Internet is used to distribute information about, for example, schedule changes. We inform you of these things through the Student Portal and you need a password to be able to see it. Therefore you need to get an UpUnet-S account. You will use the account to see your e-mail, login to the computers at the department and to login to the Studentportalen. When you get your password you must change it.

Examination Rooms

At times we use rooms outside the department for examinations. The most common rooms are at Gimogatan and Polacksbacken, see map.
