University Identity Number and user ID

When you are admitted to exchange studies or a degree programme you will receive a University Identity Number (UIN).

The UIN consists of your birth date, followed by a letter and then three random numbers, for example 880527-T281. The letter is in most cases a T, therefore the number is sometimes called “T-number”. Exchange students receive this number when registering at the university. You use this number to identify yourself at the university, for example when you register for exams or request a study transcript. Don’t confuse this number with a Swedish Personal Identity Number. If you receive a Swedish Personal Identity Number you should exchange the UIN for this number by bringing a "personbevis" from the Tax Agency (Skatteverket) or a copy of a Swedish ID card to the Student Centre, which will inform LADOK.

When you register you also receive a user ID, sometimes called a student ID, which starts with an S followed by the year you started your studies and four random numbers, for example S118692. You use the user ID for logging in to all the web services.
