In order to carry out their studies, all Open University students require access rights to use the University of Helsinki IT systems. Personal usernames and passwords are needed for using access rights.
Please note! A University of Helsinki account username is not needed for all MOOCs. No access rights to information systems are granted to students taking these courses. Details on the matter can be found in the study programme of the relevant MOOC. Read more about practices related to MOOCs.
Personal access rights are granted for all Open University students for the duration of their right to study in conjunction with their registration. You will use this username throughout your studies. The validity of a username is always updated when a new course begins or a new registration is recorded. A new registration will automatically extend the validity of an old account. The validity of accounts assigned from a University of Helsinki service desk is not automatically extended, but rather the account holder must extend their validity using the extension form (Renewal of username).
University of Helsinki undergraduate students should use their valid usernames.
