  • 2. Activate your user account and MFA

    As a new student, you need to activate your user account (your Umu-id) approximately two weeks prior to the start of the semester.

    With your user account you can:

    Install MFA for a more secure login
    To increase security and reduce the risk of unauthorised access to your information or account, students must enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) to log in to various systems, such as Canvas and the Student Web.
