Email, intranet and other communication channels


As a student at KMH you are expected to keep yourself continuously informed via your account.

Email is at present the preferred official communication channel in KMH. 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, key seminars, 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.

The intranet Backstage and other channels

Our joint, open intranet, Backstage, is new. The information is continuously being processed and translated to English.

Depending on what courses you attend and what projects you are involved in, you will also be expected to access information via Moodle, specific groups in social media, and information distributed to your "pigeon hole" postbox.
