Login and user account

The user account is an identity that consists of a username and password and giving access to the university services. Employees at Uppsala University can have one or more identities / user accounts, for example one identy as an empleyee and one as a student. 

You have to activate your account before starting to use it. To activate your account, use the web service

There are four different ways of  activating your user account:

  • confirmed user at
  • confirmed user at
  • emplyee- or student account at konto vid UU
  • one time passcode.

If you are not able to use any of the first three methods, then use the one time passcode to activate your account. Pick up your one-time passcode by presentening an approved identity card - eg Swedish driving license, national identity card or passport - at a desk, information desk or the equivalent somewhere at the University. The one-time code works for only four hours after reciving it! On there is a list of the places where it is possible to greecieve your one-time code. NOTE! Tap the i-icon at "login with one-time code" to see this list.
Exchange students create their student account on the spot using a one-time passcode.

If you have forgotten your password to the Joint Web Login, you must request a new letter with your user profile. Proceed to the web service just like you did when you activated your account.

If you forgot your password to a local system or intranet, you should contact the local IT support at the department or division.

Via the service User Profile you can change your password or create a temporary guest identity.
