How to log in to Blackboard?

To log in to Blackboard, you click the blue button ”Logga in på Blackboard / Sign in to Blackboard” and then select our university on the next page before continuing. You click on the link to select from a list, click the arrow, scroll down and choose ”University of Gävle” (NOT the one that says Alumni) and click the button ”Proceed to Login”.

In the following page, you use the login and password (your user account) that you downloaded when you first started on the University of Gävle (example; login: vf00tse and password: c3tg8s1k).

Problem with your user account?

If you have problems with your user account, please contact the IT-support.
