As a student at Lund University, you have to be able to access a number of electronic services that Lund University offers its students; among other things, you can use it to log in to the Student Portal and your webmail. This is called your Student account.
The Student account is created and sent home to students upon admission. Please note, however, that if you apply late for a course your Student account will also be late.
Your student account gives you access to the wireless network Eduroam, different kinds of learning platforms, study areas and computers, library search systems and the Student Portal. On the Student Portal, www.student.lu.se, you can see your results, print out valid certificates, download a wide range of software programs and log in to your student email account.
Find information about your Student account on lunduniversity.se: https://www.lunduniversity.lu.se/current-students/new-students/your-student-account
Student email address
It is important that you read your emails in your Student account regularly. If you already have a private email address, you can forward your student emails to it if you wish, but it is very important that you check your emails regularly, otherwise you may miss important information, for example from your teacher (e.g. last-minute timetable changes).
Canvas – our learning platform
From 2019, we primarily use Canvas as our learning platform at Lund University. The learning platform is a tool for facilitating your studies, and access materials in one place. On many courses you also submit exams and participate in discussions via Canvas. Note however that the platform is not used in all courses.
You reach Canvas via https://canvas.education.lu.se/ or by downloading the app Canvas Student from the App store (iOS) or Google Play (Android) and log in with your student ID. As soon as you are registered on your course you have access to it in Canvas.
We are switching to Canvas during the autumn term of 2019, which means that some courses still use Live@Lund or LUVIT during the autumn. Ask your teacher or check the course homepage to see what platform your course uses.
Live@Lund or Luvit
Several of SOL's Courses use so-called learning platforms as a tool for lecturers and students. Some lecturers use Luvit platforms, while others prefer the Live@Lund platform and some lecturers prefer to work in other ways and do not use any platform at all. As there is so much variation between courses, it is very important that you pay attention to the information provided by the lecturer in the first session of the course.
Log in to the learning platform with your Student account credentials.
