This e-mail account is one of the college’s main ways of communicating with you, and it is very important that you have access to it and check it regularly. We recommend that you bring all your e-mail accounts together in one app so that you have everything in one place.

Your student e-mail address is as follows:

  • [Username]@student.kristiania.no

However, when you log in you must use your login address, which is as follows:

  • [Username]@egms.no

Note that you can’t send e-mail to the login address.

I don’t use any of these

Fortunately, most e-mail clients have Office 365 or Exchange support built in. Many will recognise your login address and forward you to the login portal where you can choose to log in with Feide. Then everything should work right away.

For other apps, you may need to enter some information manually:

  • E-mail address and username: enter your login address, [username]@egms.no
  • Password: the password for your Kristiania University College account. Forgotten your password?
  • Server: outlook.office365.com

If you still can’t add the e-mail account to your client then you can contact us.
