The Department of Psychology uses a web-based platform for course information called LUVIT. On LUVIT you will find important information about the course, such as compendiums from lectures, information from the lecturer, changes to the timetable, etc.
Master’s students are served by the Library of the Faculty of Social Sciences.
At the library you will find study places, computers, printing and copying facilities and of course textbooks as well as other literature. In order to use the computers and/or the Internet, log on using your StiL ID. All students are offered a library introduction and information search training. At the library you can also get your library card – just show your admission letter.
The Lund University Library is also available to you and conveniently accessible.
Student card - Lund University access card
As a student you are entitled to a personal access card. The card will have several functions:
• ID card within Lund University
• access card to all premises relevant to your education/position
You received a StiL account (student computer identity/login) when you were admitted to the Master of Science programme. The account will be used for the electronic communication between you, your teachers and the administration. It gives you access to the electronic resources connected to the University and its libraries. In addition, you will use your StiL address when you log on to LUVIT. You will find information about your student account enclosed in your welcome letter. Please note that it is the student’s own responsibility to make sure that his/her email works!
If you have problems with your StiL ID, please contact LU Service Desk directly.
