Password and username
New users will receive a username and password at the start of their studies at NIH. Your username and password are the same for logging on to NIH's computers, to Canvas and to your student e-mail. As long as you have an internet connection, you can access your student mail, via Outlook Web App, all over the world.
You can find computers in the Library and in U3 (computer room). Remember to always log off when leaving the computer.
These clients connect to our terminal servers where you will have access to the Internet, your mail account, your home folder and printers. Available applications are Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.), SPSS, Adobe Reader and several other applications used for teaching purposes. It is not possible to run other applications than those shown on the desktop or the Start-menu.
Wireless network access
You can access the wireless network named "Eduroam" with the same username and password as mentioned above. The network is encrypted with WPA.
For computer setup (only in Norwegian), download the manual corresponding to your OS.
When printing, always choose "Fil> Skriv ut" from the menu. Select the printer you want to use, go to the printer and put your printing card in the machine. Then choose your transcript from the panel. For the Ricoh printer in the Library there is a different routine. You will find the manual beside the printer.
