Computers & IT
On this page you will find information about the library and KI's IT resources for students (and external visitors), such as computers, wireless networks and software.
Usage of the computers
The library computers can be used by all visitors. 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. Please note that computers in computer rooms and group rooms are reserved for KI affiliated.
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.
Computers and computer rooms
The computers in the computer rooms are only for KI's students and doctoral students. If you are not KI-affiliated, use the standalone computers in the library.
By logging on to the computers, you agree to KI's rules and guidelines for computer use
If you're a teacher you can book the computer rooms for lectures
The examination halls can be booked for digital and analog exams. Both digital exams as well as traditional ones on paper are conducted in the same hall. Read more about the examination halls.
Software you have access to
All active students at KI (enrolled to a program/course) have access to Office 365. The service is provided by KI but it is your choice to download and use it. No user support is given by KI, but you can find instructions and help at Microsoft Office support site.

KI gives students access to the Affinity design software suite (Photo, Designer and Publisher) that you can install on your own computer. Student IT at the University Library handles the licenses for students. If you are an employee / doctoral student and wish to use Affinity, you must contact the licensing officer at your department.
KI offers SPSS to their students. You can install it on your own computer.
All students get a student account wich gives you access to several e-services at KI. A few weeks before the semester starts you can activate your student account at KI. The student account consists of a username and a password and an email address. Have you studied at KI before but have forgotten your login details, you will find useful information under Forgotten or expired password to the student account?
You can also contact Student IT if you have trouble changing your password, or have forgotten your password.
Access after your studies are finished
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.
Access to Office 365 and library resources are closed as soon as your studies are finished.
More information about the student account can be found at the KI website.
Ladok is a web service where you can check reported grades and print official transcripts of your study results and a certificate of study registration, in both Swedish and English. Everything you print from Ladok is verified certificates and can be sent to any authoritiy or other universities.
If you are a former student or in need of a certificate with a signature and stamp, please go to Transcripts of records for more information.
