Computer Workstations

You log in using your user identity on all computer workstations that you are authorized for.

For General Use

Windows terminals can be found spread around the campuses in Luleå and Piteå and can be used by all students. The programs they have installed are mainly intended for office tasks and Internet access. Some are located in group rooms that can be booked.

Remark: Their Windows environment can also be accessed from other LTU computers with software for RDP (Remote Desktop). Use the address

NOTE! When you save documents at these terminals you need to save your material on your Home directory. Documents in downloads will be deleted when you log out from the termianl.

Automatic login in web based systems

2014 we turned on a function called Single Sign On. This means you will be automatically logged in to some web based systems when logging in to the computers in the student computer labs. The systems this concerns are the web based system using CAS login, for example My LTU and Adobe Connect.

If you are logged in to a computer and your classmate need to check their email, you will need to use a specific URL when opening a new web browser window to avoid the automatic login to, for example, My LTU. Below is a link on how to do this.

IMPORTANT! Remember to log off from your computer when you are leaving the work station, otherwise anyone can get access to your student account via My LTU.
