The LiU-ID is the user-id that gives access to e-mail, Lisam, the Student portal, mass storage, LiU computers and some systems at the departments.

Acquire your LiU-ID

As a new student you get access to a temporary LiU-ID by creating it yourself by following the steps on www.liu.se/admitted. After you have attended the roll-call you can register for your programme/courses. The day after your registration you can collect an activation key at one of the main Student Service Desks and activate your regular LiU-ID, which also provides access to your e-mail account. 

Forgotten your password?

If you have forgotten your password you can visit one of the main Student Service Desks (campus Valla and campus Norrköping) or LiU-service at entrance 76 (campus US) in order to get a new activation key.

Change password

You change your password to the LiU-ID on the following page:

Expiration (Deletion)

Each semester some students' LiU-ID's will expire and be deleted as part of our database maintenance. We use Ladok as the basis for determining which LiU-ID's should be deleted.

Dates for expirations

In April and November it is time for expirations and inactivations of LiU-ID's. An email is sent to everyone whose LiU-ID will expire well in advance (1 month). Errors may be corrected before the 1st.

Exceptions from expiration

If you have finished and passed at least 30 credits at Linköping University, you can keep your LiU-ID, but with a limited access. As an alumnus (former student) you retain access to some of the IT-services in the Student portal: study results, verifiable transcripts and the ability to change your address. You can also keep your student e-mail account. To access the Student portal, use your usual login. If you have forgotten your password, contact the Student Service Desk: 013-28 20 00 or e-mail central.studexp@liu.se.
