A password change affects several IT services

As part of your university enrolment, you will be issued a personal user name (in the form of your BA number) and corresponding password. You can use these to

  • work in university computer labs and use wireless internet
  • send and receive email from your personal account
  • log in and sign up for courses on the Virtual Campus (VC)
  • access library services and information from the university network (file server and intranet) from home
  • register for courses and look up your examination results and course credit.

Your initial password is a random combination of letters and numbers. Please handle it as you would your bank PIN and create a new one as soon as possible.
