Registration for the spring semester 2021

You need to register for your courses in the beginning of each semester. Here you can find when registration is available for your Faculty and remember that the sooner you register the better. If you are studying a single subject course you can register the day after the course has started.

LiU and the new pandemic legislation

New legislation came into force on 10 January, which regulates, among other things, how many people may be present on premises at the same time.

Planned technical maintenance for exam registration

On Monday January 18th from 13:00 to 17:00 there is a stop for planned technical maintenance for exam registration. This means that the service cannot be used in either the Student Portal or the LiU app.

Increased risk of IT disturbance

Decontamination of a technical space that was damaged during drilling will start on Monday 2021-01-11, and is expected to continue for at least two days. While the decontamination effort is ongoing LiU will not have uninterruptible power to its main data center. This means that even a short power outage during this period may lead to significant problems with all IT systems at LiU.
