For safety reasons, the IT-department does not send passwords to users in any way, nor via mail or email.


If you are a student, you can acquire a new password as follows, go to https://sebra.uib.no and choose the option ‘student’ under the ‘forgotten password’ heading on the left of your screen. To complete this action you have to have the PIN-code you use for Studentweb, your studentnumber, and your social security number.

If you have forgotten you PIN-code, then you need to contact the student desk (Langenesgaten 1. more info here) in order to acquire a new PIN-code. The same course of action should be taken if one has forgotten ones username.
