GitLab based version control system for Helsinki University's projects

This service is meant for both internal and shared projects. All data is backed up nightly and stored in the university's data center in Helsinki. Additionally, access can be granted to people not affiliated with UH. This makes the service ideal for research collaboration.
Anyone with a UH user account can use the service: it is not limited to researchers only but is suitable for student projects as well.
For the moment there is no limit on the number of projects per user.

User accounts & login

  • If you have a University of Helsinki user account, use University Account login (1)
  • Otherwise use the standard login (2)
    • this means your account is local and can't be used on any other service of the University of Helsinki
  • If you need to grant access to someone who doesn't have a University of Helsinki user account, please contact it4science@helsinki.fi
    • make sure to include the e-mail address of the person that needs to use the service
