For staff

Welcome to the ICT Services website for Oamk!

We provide the acquisition and maintenance of computers and software, give support and provide telecommunication and data communication services for Oamk staff. ICT services are responsible for the Oamk computers and other IT related devices, including data networks and the databases administration.

We have gathered guidelines to this page that is built on WordPress: From this page you will find all the guidelines in English arranged to topics. You will find all publically available guidelines for Oamk staff from the blogroll, organised according the date of publication (includes also posts that are available only in Finnish). There is also a serach available. Unfortunately not all the guidelines on these pages are available in English. In case you need assistance, please contact ICT Services.

IT guidelines

Working in the evening at Oamk premises
Typically it is possible to work in the evenings. Ask local janitors for a more detailed schedule for the building you’re working in. You have to have an official badge (with a photo) with you when you are at Oamk premises in the evenings. When janitors are not present, the guards will let only those stay who have an official badge.


  • Secure printing (this is the students guide: it works the same way for staff too, the only exception is that you don’t have to pay for the prints yourself like the students do.)
  • Adding a printer to a computer
  • Avoid unnecessary printing!
