To activate your account at Umeå University
To have access to the central IT-system here at Umeå University you are required to have a user account (Umu-id).
Umeå University grants all students a user account once they have been accepted into our courses. The user account gives you access to Internet from our computer labs, our wireless network, the teaching platforms such as Cambro as well as the student Portal (where you can access email and look at your student results amongst other things).
As a student you are given an email address via Umeå University that you can use for communication.
It is important that you activate your user account as soon as possible!
Two ways to activate your account
All students receive a temporary identity from Umeå University in form of a mail sent to your ‘home’ address. With that temporary identity you can activate your user account. The other way to activate your account is via your user at universityadmissions.se. Both sites can be accessed via the below listed links.
