Uniarts user ID activation and validation

How to get a Uniarts user ID and e-mail, how long the user ID is valid and how to change your password.

Your user ID will be generated automatically after your right to study has been registered and has come into effect. This happens either on 1 August or 1 January.

Receiving your user ID

Register with your Finnish online banking identification at https://password.uniarts.fi/. International students will receive their user IDs in the beginning of studies from student services. 

User ID follows the form abc12345, three letters, five numbers.

Users must come up with a password upon authentication. Create a new password that you do not already use elsewhere. You should read the terms of use already before logging in to the identification service, because authorisation requires that you are aware of and follow the terms of use. 

Uniarts ID is used to login to all our IT-services, computers, webmail, Teams, Peppi or any other university’s service.

There are two use formats of the account, for example for Microsoft O365 -services you need to add @uniarts.fi -suffix. You can determine by the login page, which form of Uniarts ID to use.

Changing a password

After you have received your Uniarts user ID, you can change your password or retrieve your lost user ID by going to https://password.uniarts.fi/.
