You will receive your University username automatically when you become a University of Otago staff member (i.e. on the University’s payroll system). You are also given a temporary password that you must change in the Identity Self Service Console.

Changing temporary password

If you are a new staff member and have not yet received your University username and temporary password, contact AskOtago:

Tel +64 3 479 7000 or 0800 80 80 98
Email university@otago.ac.nz

Your department may apply for an external username on your behalf if you do not qualify as a staff member:
