Umu-id - your user account

In order to access the central IT systems at Umeå University, you need a user account, an Umu-id. You will receive a user account after you have been admitted to studies at Umeå University, and you will need to activate it before you can use it to sign in.

Umeå University offers all active students a user account. The user account gives you access to:

  • an email address which you can access via o365.umu.se.
  • our wireless networks
  • the learning platform Canvas
  • information and personal services that apply to your studies such as:
    • course registration
    • examination sign-up
    • service for creating certificates of your studies
    • degree application.

You also need to have your user account before you can get the Umu card. It is therefore important that you activate your account as soon as possible.

Activate your Umu-id

I want to activate using an activation code

You can activate your Umu-id using an activation code that is sent to you by email. If you are an exchange student or tuition fee paying student you will receive an activation code by email a couple of weeks prior to the start of your studies.

You can change between the guide in Swedish and English by clicking the language name in the upper right corner of the window. 

Activation guide

I want to activate using an account at Universityadmission.se

If you have a Swedish personnummer (personal identity number) you can activate your Umu-id using your Universityadmissions.se account at the earliest one week before the semester starts.

Please note that if you have a temporary personnummer (one that contains a letter, such as T, in the last four digits) you are most likely not able to activate your account this way. Please use the method described in I want to activate my Umu-id using an activation code instead.
