Getting the UEF user account
You will need a UEF username during your studies at the university to gain access to the university’s network, student register Peppi, email and Office 365 services, Moodle and the online services of the university library (opens in a new tab).
The UEF username is activated via UEF e-services using one’s Finnish online banking codes. If you currently have or have previously had a UEF username (e.g. Open University students, persons studying for a second degree), it can be activated by changing the password. Do not activate a new username.
You can activate your user account either
– with one-time-code (opens in a new tab)
– with your Finnish online banking codes (opens in a new tab)
Activation can be done after the study right has been recorded in the student register and the information has been transferred to the Identity Manager. The student will receive an automated email when the activation is possible. If you don’t have Finnish online banking codes and activate your account with the one-time-code, the user access rights are limited (Weboodi/Moodle). You can be identified and given the full access rights without Finnish online banking codes by the IT Servicedesk (opens in a new tab).
The user account rights are added as the study right begins, usually on 1.8. or 1.1., or the next day you have registered as an absent or present student as the study right is valid.
The username will be available for use one hour after its activation. The email formation takes up to four (4) hours. All UEF students who activate their username are provided with a UEF email account which is set as the default email account for all UEF’s information system. Any email messages by the university are sent to the UEF email address. The email addresses of UEF students are always in the format email@example.com. More information about the email in Kamu.
UEF users must register Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), read the instructions: uef.fi/tipa (new tab).
Once you have activated your username, test that it works by logging in to the student register and checking your name and address details.
The access rights associated with UEF usernames are based on a valid study right and having registered as present at the university. A student who registers as absent at the university will have access rights to the student register, but their access right to other online systems of the university will be restricted. Students who do not register as present or absent at the university will not be granted access rights to the university’s systems.
Forgot your password?
If you have forgotten your password, you can change the password via the university’s e-services. Read these instructions on how to change your password (opens in a new tab). The password is valid for six months after it has been changed. The system will automatically send a notification to your student email address when it is time to change your password before it expires.
To change the password, you can use the username-password combination, verify your identity with your personal Finnish online banking codes, or visit the IT servicedesk in person. Remember to bring your ID with you to the customer service point. We always check everyone’s identity. If this not possible, contact IT Services (New tab).
What is my username?
You can check your username by logging in to the Identity Manager by changing your password with your Finnish online banking codes. You can see your username under My Account.
The username and password are personal, do not let anyone use them on your behalf!
