  • Please use this link to log on to the self service portal.
  • Try Remote Desktop from Windows start menu, then choose skrivebord.uib.no. When logged in you start a browser window and use the link for the self service portal.
  • Some users have experienced that if they have login problems, they can be solved by the previous suggestion, or by connecting their work computer to the UiB network using an ethernet cable and trying to log in for the first time while connected via ethernet cable. If this is successful, further login attempts should be successful via other networks and wi-fi.

How do I register flexible workinghours?

If you have a flexitime agreement, you must register attendance time every day. Attendance time can be registered between kl. 06: 00-21: 00 Monday-Friday (up to 12 hours), and between 07:00- 18:00 Saturdays (up to 5 hours) (ref. Employee handbook).

Due to the Corona situation, the core time has been put out of action until 31.08.2021. The system will show "red day" if you have not worked the entire core time, but this is allowed in the spring of 2021. When taking part of a day off, the flexitime balance is adjusted automatically, you will not see this until the next day. If you want to take a day off, you must make an absence application.

User guides for time registration can be found here

My name has bees changed in my e-mail account and personal page at uib.no. How can I correct this?

In connection with the transition to a new payroll and personnel system at UiB, a number of employees have had their names changed in UiB's employee catalogues.  The reason for this is that the new payroll system now uses information from the National Population Registry Office as the basis for employee names. As the name in the new payroll system governs names in other systems, this means that many people have had their names changed elsewhere, for example their email account and personal page at www.uib.no.

NB! This applies only for employees who has a norwegian social security number. 

If you want to change the name that is currently registered in UiB's system, you must report this to the Payroll Section in UiB Help. The name will then be corrected shortly.

Please note: The name registrered in the payroll system is also transferred to the travel agency and other services, so it must be fully identifying for you.

It is also possible to only change the name displayed on uib.no. Log on to https://www.uib.no/login and select Edit.
