NB! When signing in via Eduroam, you will get access to the electronic resources at your institution, not at UiA!
2) If you want to use a stationary PC, turn to the library desk or IT help desk. You will get a username and password there. The account takes approximately 30 minutes to be activated. It's valid for 30 days.

If none of your cards contains a RFID chip, you may borrow at the library or IT help desk. The card must be returned before your network access terminates (30 days).
You fill up your print account on the point-of-sale terminal next to IT help desk. NB! You will have to wait up to 1 hour from you get the sms before you can do this.
To fill up your print account is separated in two parts. First you connect the RFID card to your username:

The association is completed
Then you pay for prints and copies:
Scan RFID card
Choose “print” and the amount of money (min. 10 NOK)
Pay with bank card
NB! Estimate for how much you will print and copy. We charge 0.40 NOK for each black/white page and 1 NOK for each page in colour. Do not pay more than you will use. You will lose your credit when your account is deactivated (30 days).
It will take up to one hour before you can print or copy. When you want to print or copy, hold your RFID card by the card reader on the printer. Persons that use the UiAGuest network, can't scan documents.
Researchers and lecturers who stay at UiA temporarily, don’t have to pay. Their expenses are paid by their department at the UiA.
