Who can access ACRIS

All members of staff in academic and research related posts along doctoral students will have automatically ACRIS accounts set up for them. The information is synchronized from HR and student information systems.

ACRIS account rights are based on the study right and/or the contract recorded in the personnel information system and thus only accessible if you have valid work contract or study right. 

ACRIS accounts may be requested for other members of staff (such as support staff) by emailing [email protected]

ACRIS is a web-based system and can be accessed from anywhere.

  1. Who have started their studies in 2010 or later.
  2. Who have enrolled as attendees.
  3. All the doctoral students who have already authorized ACRIS support to transfer their information to ACRIS.

If you do not want your information transferred to ACRIS or if you have started your studies earlier than 2010 and do want to transfer your information to ACRIS, please contact [email protected] or your school's student services.
