Frequently Asked Questions about the Student ID App

How do I log on to the app?

You log on with the same username (sxxxxxx) and password you use on other OsloMet systems (Canvas, computer etc.).

When can I start using the app?

You may start using the app as soon as you have registered in Studentweb and paid the semester fee. Please note that it can take up to 5 working days before your payment is registered in our system.

Do I still need a OsloMet student card (admission card)?

Yes, you need your student card to borrow books from the Learning Centre and Library and to get into the OsloMet buildings where you have your classes. Students must keep their student cards with them whenever they are on campus.

How do I use the app to prove that I have the right to buy a student ticket on NSB or Ruter? 

When you meet a ticket inspector, you need to show your transport ticket (NSB or Ruter) together with your Student ID App. The app proves that you are an active student at OsloMet.

Why doesn’t my picture show on the app?

Your picture will not show on the app until you have received your student card with your picture on. You will receive more information about when and where you can get your student card at the Orientation Meeting or at the Service Centre.

Is the Student ID App valid when it doesn’t show my picture?

Yes, it is valid, but you will have to show additional picture ID. The app still proves that you are an active student at OsloMet.
