You have access to your student account (student e-mail, Canvas and other systems) two semesters after you have finished your studies at KI. Make sure to save copies of material (emails, documents at Canvas and OneDrive, home catalogue etc) you want to keep before the account is closed down.

Use KI computers
Most stand-alone computers can be used by all visitors. The computers in group rooms and computer rooms are only for KI affiliated.
As a KI student or employee, you use your KI-login to log in. As an external visitor you use the credentials you receive when you get your library card.
Some users might need to change keyboard language to Swedish. See the instructions on how to change keybord language on the library's computers.
Your home catalogue
As a student at KI you can access your documents saved in the catalogue connected to your student login from home or the wireless network. The home catalogue can be found on H:, click on the icon on the desktop containing your user name. We recommend that you work with your documents through your home catalogue since we do daily backups and can secure that nothing is lost.
As a student or employee at KI you can use the wireless network Eduroam which extends over large areas of the campus. We recommend using Eduroam because you don't have to log in every time you connect. Eduroam is an international collaboration and is available at many universities and public places (airports, for example) around the world.
- If you use Eduroam, you need to use certain settings. Follow the instructions carefully.
- Guests use the network KI-Guest. Login details can be obtained at by asking the library staff.
The computer rooms are only for KI's students and doctoral students. In Flemingsberg, the computer rooms are only for booked lectures. In Solna, students may use the computer rooms when no booked lectures are taking place. Use your KI card to enter.
