As a student at the department of Computing Science, you will work on computers in a local network separated from computer network of the university. This implies that you will get access to a computer user with storage in the local computer system. We also have computer support staff employed at the department.
All students at Umeå Universitet have a central computer account. That user account is also referred to as your "CAS-identity". The username of that account is also the first part of an email-address that ends with @student.umu.se. You should have received information about this CAS-identity at the same time as your application was granted. If you have questions concerning CAS, please contact the support centre at UMDAC (se links in the menu to the right).
You can use your CAS-identity to e.g. log in at the Student Portal where you, among other things, can print out a copy of your study merits.
A local computer user is created automatically when you register to a course at the department of computing science. This user is also connected to computer storage and an email-account (ending with @cs.umu.se). In order to be able to use the computer user, you must sign an agreement containing rules about computer use. Usually, you get these documents by you lecturer. Otherwise, contact the support personnel. All email regarding courses at computing science will be sent to this address, so if you don't want to read this email directly, you need to forward it to some address that you do read. For more information, see the support pages, link in the right column.
You need an access card in order to get to the computer rooms. If you already own an access card to another house/room on this campus, you will automatically get access to the computer rooms when registered to the course. Otherwise, contact the student service desk.
