New at KMH
This is a summary of the most important thing you need to know as a new student at KMH.
Your course registration
To be able to attend courses you must be registered as a student at KMH.
Please note that registration is mandatory, and will give you access to KMH facilities and resources, such as key card, network access and the library.
You register via Ladok, the administration system for higher education in Sweden.
Registration at the start of the autumn semester is followed by introduction activities during the last week of August.
All students and free movers are welcome!
The introduction programme consists of three joint days for all students, with guided tours, information, workshops and more, and then two more days with different activities depending on which of the three KMH academies you will belong to.
Consent to documentation and publication
We advice you to immediately sign and submit the form for consent to documentation and publication of educational activities.
Your signature is needed for KMH in order to be able to promote and disseminate knowledge both about you as a student and about KMH in general, through publication and distribution of images and sounds from concerts, projects or other activities.
The consent is not a restriction of your copyright concerning artistic material you produce as part of your studies.
Your access card
The card serves as your personal identification card and key to KMH's premises. It also gives you access to, among other things:
- loan of equipment in the Service Centre
- loan of material in the library
User account and IT services
Your personal user account includes:
- your home directory on the file server
- your email account as a student (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The user account also gives access to a number of IT services, including:
- room reservations
- KMH virtual rooms (Moodle)
- KMH wireless networks
- IT helpdesk
- Eduroam: free wireless network within and in certain places outside KMH, eg other colleges, train stations and airports around the world
- via the library, international media databases, publication of independent projects, etc. through DiVA, the Digital Academic Archive.
Email, intranet and other communication channels
As a student at KMH you are expected to keep yourself continuously informed via mainly three channels: the intranet Backstage, your @student.kmh.se email account, and the learning management system Moodle.
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 email 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-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.
Backstage is our open intranet for all students and staff. 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.
Moodle and more
During most courses and projects you are involved in, you are expected to access information via Moodle, our learning management system. 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.
