We advise you to get familiar with the various computer services at HiST, as they are necessary tools for all students. The very first thing you should do is activate your user account. Below you will find information on how to do this.
Students are required to register at the beginning of each semester, and students failing to do so will not get access to the computer services and other facilities on campus.
If you have not already received your student number an PIN code by mail, please contact the service desk or the international coordinator at your faculty for help.
Without a student number and PIN code you will not be able to use computers or access computer services at your campus. HiST IT regulations state that the PIN code is strictly personal, and should not be given to other persons. If you loose or forget your PIN code, or suspect someone else knows it, please contact the college administration to obtain a new one.
In order to utilise the services available to members of the Student Union (for example, discounts offered by the railways, buses and airlines, theatres, exhibitions etc.), you should obtain a student card from the service centre at your campus. Exchange students participating in the Nordplus and Erasmus programmes will get this card free of charge. All other students will get the student card after having presented the receipt of the Student Union membership fee (semester fee) payment. The semester, paper and copy fee is around NOK 500 for one semester. It is not possible to sit for exams without having paid the semester fee, except for Nordplus and Erasmus students. The card must be presented at all examinations, when borrowing books from the library, and used with the PIN code it serves as a key card on campus.
