Students who work at Hanken need two user-ids
Hanken students who also work at Hanken needs two user-ids and two e-mail addresses.
The @hanken.fi account stays with the working id, and the student e-mail address will be @student.hanken.fi.
The user-id that belongs to work has the @hanken.fi account and cannot be forwarded anywhere - it is not allowed for staff and faculty to forward their mails outside the organization Hanken.
To get a user-id an application, signed by your boss, has to be returned to InfoBITen/computer center ( application form found on the Swedish pages on the staff/faculty webportal )
If you have been working with your studentid already - remember that what you have on your network directory H:\ or under My Documents on your work computer is associated with that id. To access it from your work user-ID you need to move your jobrelated stuff to the computer or to the Group directory on G: in case others need to access the material in the future).
When the job ends, the @hanken.fi email account ends.
The @student.hanken.fi will follow you troughout your stay as a student.
