Backstage, e-mail, and other communication channels

As a student at KMH you are expected to keep yourself continuously informed via mainly three channels: Backstage, your e-mail account, and the learning management system Moodle.


Backstage is our open intranet for all students and staff at KMH. Visiting it once or twice a week will keep you updated about what's on at the campus. At the startpage all shortcuts to important tools and systems are available.


Mailing lists to students and employees are regularly used to distribute important information regarding i.e. changes in opening hours, interruptions in IT services, major concert projects, guest teacher visits, etc.

Via your e-mail account, you also receive important information specific to your department, your study programme or your subjects of study.

Besides via webmail, you can use your KMH e-mail account in a regular e-mail client/program (as long as it is compatible with SSL) on your smartphone, your PC, tablet, etc. Then use the following information:

  • Account type: Exchange
  • Username: your full email address
  • Password: your password

The settings for servers for incoming and outgoing mail should filled in automatically when you have filled in this information.

Canvas and more

During most courses and projects you are involved in, virtual rooms in Canvas, our learning management system, will be used. There your teacher will make documents and information available, and communicate with the course participants. Sometimes specific groups in social media are used instead.

Analogue information and regular mail is distributed to your pigeon hole postbox.

Via our digital signage system, with screens in the foyer and the student's pentry, we distribute information about external guests at campus, as well as master classes, concerts, etc.

Your health

Student health care (Studenthälsan in Swedish) is a part of the student service at KMH. At the Studenthälsan office, you can make appointments with a nurse or a psychologist.
