There are several ways to create your KauID. You can use an account at universityadmissions.se or eduID.se. If you do not have an account at one of these services, you can visit student support. Please note that you must have a Swedish civic number (personnummer) that was supplied by the Swedish Tax Office (Skatteverket) to use these services currently. If you have a temporary civic number supplied by the University, then you need to contact us via email or visit our helpdesk in person.
You can visit student support in the Welcome Center and show ID (weekdays 11.00-13.00) or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send an activation code via snail mail to your registered address. Include your Swedish civic number or temporary civic number in the email.
