IT Account Security

Manage your University password & set up MFA

Staff and students are required to secure their IT account by setting up Microsoft Authentication.

All staff and students are enabled for Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). You will be prompted to authenticate when you log into your University Microsoft account, e.g. Outlook, Teams, OneDrive, or any other MS 365 tool. (You may already be familiar with authentication as it is used on a regular basis for online transactions such as banking, shopping, or PayPal.) 

The Password Reset service is a feature of Microsoft Authentication. It allows you to reset or change your University IT Account password yourself - for example if you forget  it, or if you think your IT account has been compromised - and across all University logins.

For more information to step you through setting up MFA, and registering for Password Reset see our Guides and Videos or visit our FAQs
