What can Student IT offer you?

Student IT aim towards answering your questions relating to IT services at The University of Oslo (UiO). We can get you a new password if you have forgotten the one you got (remember to bring your ID with you), or find out why your account is not working.

We can help you with problems relating to your computer and Microsoft Office.

We can help you connect your laptop or mobile devices to UiO wireless network. In addition we can help students getting access to the UiO software database.

We help you with installation of required software for digital exam. We also provide relevant information to technical inquiries related to digital examination.

Student IT is in charge of maintaining the computer rooms at The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (MN). In case the Student IT desk is unstaffed, you can contact us by email and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
