Change or reset your University password

If you have forgotten your password you can reset it. You can also change your password and should do so regularly if you handle sensitive data.

Changing your password

When you started at the University you will have been issued with a random password. We advise that you change this as soon as you can. You will also be prompted to do this every year if you handle sensitive data.

If you know your password and need to change it, you can do so using Account Manager

Resetting your password

Current staff and students

You’ll need your University username and you must have already set up your password recovery questions. If not, contact the IT Service Desk. Otherwise, you can reset your password using the password reset tool.
