Webmail – email via your web browser
You can access and read your email from any computer that has a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Safari. Log in using your Lucat ID and password.
VPN – Virtual private network

Virtual workplace – LU Desktop
Regardless of what computer you are using, through LU Desktop you can get access to:
- All of your documents and other saved materials,
- a large number of programs, and
- your personal settings for all your programs.
Guest login for visitors at Lund University
Directory administrators can set up temporary user accounts so that visitors will have access to the wireless networks. The user will then select ‘LU weblogon’ in the list of available networks on their computer or tablet.
When the user selects ‘LU weblogon’, a new page will appear where a password will need to be entered – a so-called WPA password. The current password is lu2015-1. The user will enter the password and click ‘OK’, or ‘Connect’.
When a new browser is started it will automatically direct the user to the login page for LU weblogon. The user will log in using their Lucat ID and password (also temporary users).
WPA password: From 1 January 2016 the key is: lu2016-1. On 1 July 2016 the key will change into lu2016-2, and so on.
