User Account

After you have confirmed your study place with us, you need to create a user account (electronic identity), which will allow you access to a number of online services that will facilitate your daily life as a student here at the University.

Create Your User Account

Go to https://activate.du.se to create your account, including your password.

User Name and Password

Your user name has eight characters: all letters are small (ie. not capitals). An example of a student's user name is "v17abcde" (v = vår = spring: autumn semester is indicated with an h = höst = autumn); the year you commence your studies (2017); and the five letters that follow are based on your name.

To change your password, go to activate.du.se. Choose the function "Change password".

Account Removal

You will retain your user account throughout the time you are registered at the University.

Nine months after your last course closes you will receive an email warning you that your account will  be removed soon. In general, you will have four weeks after the email is sent before the account is deleted. The message is sent to the email address you have here at the university.

Storage Capacity

On My Pages, you can see how much storage you have left. If you require more, then contact support@du.se.

Some links below require that you are logged in as they link to your My Pages account.

Disk Usage and Quota

You can see how much storage space you have used and how much you have left. If you require more, then you can ask your teacher to email support@du.se to request that you receive more hard-disk storage on your user account.

Email Forwarding

We strongly advise against forwarding e-mails outside the university as in many cases this does not work as intended. More and more email providers, such as Yahoo, are choosing to mark forwarded email as junk or refuse to receive the message altogether. You risk missing important information!

Printing (Photocopying) Account

You can see the balance of your printing (photocopying) account in My Account in My Pages. Register your card using the five digits that appear on your key card so that you can print out and photocopy from the campus machines.
