Start using your user ID

You must be able to identify yourself with a passport, official ID or electronically with Finnish bank codes in order to receive your user ID for Hankens network. You must also change your password before your user account can be used.

Identify yourself

In order to start using your user ID, you need strong authentication, which means:

  • that you either identify yourself online through our self-service portal with Finnish bank codes. In order to do this you must have a Finnish personal identity code in our student-/personnel database.
  • or if this is not possible, you must come in person and prove your identity with a passport or other official identity document. 
    You can do this at the Service Point in the main building in Helsinki or at the data center in Vaasa. Then you must show the official ID
  • No, we do not provide user IDs via phone or email.

Accept User Agreement

Once you have identified yourself, you must accept the user agreement and change your password:

  • In the self-service portal you electronically accept the Agreement for User ID at the Hanken School of Economics after which you change your password in the portal.
  • If you need to come in person to receive your user ID, you will need to sign a paper agreement with approximately the same wording.
  • NOTE! The password you receive at the service disk must be changed before you can use your user ID for any service. The next time you have to change your password, you must accept the agreement digitally.

When you sign the agreement you are obliged to follow Hanken's IT rules and use the account accordingly for your Hanken studies or Hanken job.

Change Password

  • You must immediately enter a password that meets the requirements (listed on the page when you change online), which are specified here Hanken password policy - please note that you must not use the same password for your Hanken account as for any other account!
  • You can not use any Hanken IT service before you change your password - regardless if you identified and signed digitally or personally!

Renewal of the agreement annually

At least once a year, you will have to re-approve the agreement and any changed terms of use through the self-service portal.
