Where can I use my LabraNet account?

How do I get LabraNet User ID?

If you are a student you have first to enroll to courses in Peppi. After that you will receive via email your LabraNet User ID and some instructions. You will not receive User ID if none of the courses that you have enrolled to is held in LabraNet class rooms. At the beginning of each semester LabraNet Admins will periodically run a script that check new users from Peppi. If you are not going to enroll in Peppi (e.g. you have almost finished your studies) and you wish to use LabraNet, please mail us or visit room D332 in IT-Dynamo.

Members of staff can have their User ID’s by visiting us in room D332.

I left a memory stick behind and now it’s not there, where can I find it?

You can try asking your teacher in that class, Infodesk at Dynamo Lobby or LabraNet staff at D332.

Why are these pages written in English?

Mainly because we have also international students who’ll hopefully read these instructions.

What alternative browsers do you offer?

We currently support Mozilla Firefox and Chrome.

I get this error at classroom when trying to log on: There are currently no logon servers available

Usually this means that the computer does not have a network connection. Check if the network cable is unplugged and try rebooting the computer. If the problem persists, contact LabraNet staff.

I got this error: Application Blocked on this webpage X, how can I use this service?

This is our application firewall blocking the connection. If you need a special service allowed for study purposes, contact us.

Is there any possibility to use LabraNet services (e.g. home folder) at home?

Yes there is. Please look at the instructions -section.

When will you delete my account/data?

We generally only delete accounts and data some time after graduation or dropping out. If you want your data erased/taken offline and no longer have access to do it yourself, please inform us.

I need to reset my password?

Please look at the instructions -section.

Why is my account disabled?

Accounts are automatically disabled before the next semester and will be only enabled if you have applied to courses. If you’re doing other studies such as thesis or projects, please mail us or visit D332.
