Using DIS IT Resources

Student Computer Access

When logging onto DIS computers, you must use your five-digit Student ID as username and your birthday as password. The format for the password should be as follows: Month## (Capital first letter and 2-digit date. Example: January01)

Internet Access

DIS Wi-Fi is available throughout all DIS Copenhagen buildings. DIS Copenhagen buildings include classrooms, campus area, Residential Communities, and Living & Learning Communities. The Wi-Fi network is called ‘DIS-Student’ and to connect to it, you must use your five-digit Student ID as username and your birthday as password.

The format for the password should be as follows: Month## (Capital first letter and 2-digit date. Example: January01)

In living situations where DIS Wi-Fi is not provided, you can get a 4G Wi-Fi router for the semester. Contact the Housing department for more information about getting a router.

Classroom AV Setup

Each classroom is equipped with a computer and a projector. The computer has DVD capabilities. It is possible to use your personal laptop with our AV system. However, we do not carry VGA adapters for Mac laptops, so be sure to provide your own. For your reference, there is a set-up instruction card placed in each classroom.

Note: When classes are not scheduled, you are welcome to use classroom computers and rooms for quiet study. See the schedule outside each classroom for availability.

Saving Your Work on A DIS Computer

Never save work on the local computer (Desktop, My Documents, etc.), as this information is erased on a daily basis to insure adequate memory. Instead, save to your personal student folder. The storage allowance for students is 500 MB. Architecture & Design students receive an additional 500 MB, for a total of 1 GB.
