Practical information

ID cards at Ahus

You need an ID card for access to the hospital's departments, for white garments, for a PC connected to the patient network and the car park. To receive an ID card from Ahus, you have to take a 4-week mandatory e-Learning programme before you arrive. As soon as we receive the list of students, we will send you your user name and password. Those who have taken the courses and have received an ID card for a new hospital in the past do not need to do so again. Those of you who still have a card: Please bring it for reactivation.

For students in semesters 3 and 4A: We will issue you with a simpler ID card with limited access. ID cards can be collected from the Service Centre every day from 07:30–11:00 and 12:00–16:00. Contact the main reception at Akershus University Hospital, which will help you find the Service Centre.

Remember to return the card when your semester is over.
