Computer Configuration

Installation and setup

Contact to arrange installation and configuration of your machine. Do not use 'Forward' or 'Reply' on the e-mail from purchase, but send new e-mail with new subject field.

Please include

■ Contact information, preferably mobile number

■ Place of delivery (Rikshospitalet, Ullevål or Ahus)

■ Programs to be installed

We will notify you when the equipment is ready for delivery.

We install Windows 10 with Office 2016 and EndNote by default on all machines. We can also install Linux, either Fedora or RHEL7.


Microsoft Office 2016 and EndNote are pre-installed on all Windows computers. Beyond that, you can get the software you need for the machine via Software Center. This does not require administrator rights.

If you need programs that are not in the UiO Software Center, please specify this in the email to us.

If you have your own licenses for special software, you must have this ready when meeting with us.

To access PubMed outside the UiO's wired network, you must use Internet Explorer via the UiO program kiosk.

Portable Mac

Portable Macs are only available for pickup at Søhjemhjemmet, Ullevål Hospital.

Local IT will assist  with completing the configuration of the machine. This must be done with the user of the machine, who must log in with their UiO user name and password before the machine can be handed over. The user must also have a valid Apple account.

The machine will be registered in Mobile Workroom, UiO's management system for Apple devices.

To download UiO-supported software, please use the Managed Software Center. You can also download software from the website
