Frequently asked questions about ICT services

1. What IT services can I use as a student at Diak?

The main systems our students use include Moodlerooms, Office365 and MS Office, and databases and e-books provided by the library. Diak’s computers are Windows PCs, which have basic software for all common tasks.

2. I have forgotten my password, what should I do?

You can get a new password by visiting the helpdesk of any Diak campus during opening hours or by requesting support by emailing tuki(at)www.diak.fi.

The password will be sent to the phone number you have given for the student information system. Make sure you include your contact information and user ID in the support request, or bring proof of identity when visiting the helpdesk.

3. How can I print from my own computer on campus?

Send the file to be printed as an attachment from your student email address to tulostus@diak.fi. This method works best with PDF files. If your document is in another format or contains complex formatting, it is best to email it to yourself and print it from one of Diak’s computers.

4. How do I log into MoodleRooms?

Go to Moodle and log in using the short form of your user ID (e.g. c12345@student.www.diak.fi) and your password.
