IT help for students
Some IT start-up-help for students at the Department of Biology
The Student Portal
To login in the student portal at student.lu.se, use your Stil account, don’t not to forget the ending part “-s”.
Wireless network – Eduroam
How to connect to Eduroam, first method
Go to the wifi-list in your device and pick Eduroam. You will be prompted to type in a username and password. Use your stil-account, in this case ending with “-s [at] lu [dot] se”. For example aa1111aa-s [at] lu [dot] se.
You might have to accept an agreement or a certificate to connect the first time.
Go to https://cat.eduroam.org/?idp=433 and follow the instructions (they differ depending on what kind of device you use). Please note that this method requires a working internet connection.
VPN (Virtual Private Network)
To access some university services from home or download software you have to be connected by VPN. Information about how to install VPN is available on the Student Portal (Services/Computer programmes download).
As a student at Lund University, you can download and use a variety of software during your studies here. For example Microsoft software like the Office-suite and Windows, SPSS, EndNote, Matlab and much more. The complete list and download locations are available on the Student Portal (Services/Computer programmes download). If you want to download software from outside LU, make sure to use the VPN-connection.
As a biology student, you may print files that are related to your studies at the department. Printing from printers in computer rooms (directly from the computers) is free of charge, for now, all other printers use Papercut (information on the Lund University Printing web pages). To use Papercut, you have to open an account and pay for each printout (read more about paying for your prints at the Lund University Printing web pages). Printers that use Papercut can be found outside the Library in the Ecology building and in the cloakroom (with cabinets) in Biology building A. Soon a printer will also be placed outside the Bioinformatics Hall in Biology building D.
All students get a Google Apps-email address with a Google Drive of 25 GB.
To log in, go to webmail.student.lu.se (use the stil-account name ending with “-s”). Your default email-address is your stil-account(with the -s)@student.lu.se but you can change it to a more easily readable address using the guide on the Student Portal (My settings/Change visible E-mail address). The alternative address you can use is visible on the Student Portal (My settings/Change my contact info).
