Password

University network passwords must be changed at least every 180 days. Passwords must be at least nine characters long, and must include uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and numbers. They cannot be the same as a previous password, and cannot contain your name.

To change your password:


If you are using a University PC on-campus, press Ctrl-Alt-Delete whilst already logged in and select the "Change a password…" option.

If you are using a University Mac on-campus, click the Apple menu, then "System Preferences…", then the "Users & Groups" icon, and finally "Change Password…" next to your name.

If you are off-campus, log on to the Remote Access Portal, then select the Outlook Web App (OWA) link. Click Options at the top right, then "Change Your Password…"
