Computer Labs

There are a few computers around the university that are open for all students to use.  These belong to the University Librarys computer labs.

There is also a computer lab in the Medical Library (building 6M NUS)

All other computer labs are the responsibility of individual departments.  Students of those respective departments have access to these labs.  To have access to these labs requires that your UmU-card has the correct permissions.  UmU-cards can be updated for permissions by the appropriate House Services department.  The only exception is for the MIT-building which is administered by Study Administrators.

How do I get access to Microsofts developers tools?

Umeå universitet gives active students access to MS Azure Dev Tools for Teaching (has replaced MS Imagine), containing the most common development tools from Microsoft. The use is for scientific/technical studies or evaluation for this purpose. You will e.g. not get access to MS Office.

The Windows versions accessible through MS Azure Dev Tools for Teaching are there to facilitate access to use the development applications. Please note that MS Windows at MS Azure Dev Tools for Teaching is not allowed to be installed on a computer where there is no license for a full version of Windows.

See more information from Microsoft about MS Azure Dev Tools for Teaching:

Here you can reach MS Azure Dev Tools for Teaching:

As a doctoral student, teacher and researcher at Umeå University, you can also access MS Azure Dev Tools for Teaching if the software is only used in research and learning (non-commercial or productive purpose).

If you don’t remember the password to your student mail

How do I activate my UmU-id?


Activation guide

You can, as employee, student or associate to Umeå University activate your Umu-id.  The activation guide has instructions and helps you activate your account (and thereafter print out your newly created account information).

You can activate with help of a temporary identity that you should have received, or, as a student, with help of your https://www.universityadmissions.se/intl/start account.


With activation of your Umu-id, your AD-account is automatically activated with the same password as your Umu-id and your email address is created – normally in the syntax  {firstname}.{lastname}@umu.se


It is slightly different for students than for staff/associates.  First of all, a student AD-account is activated automatically together with their Umu-id and password is intially set as the same for both accounts.
