When you change your password, it changes for all applications and systems with that particular University username and password combination.

These include:

  • Logging into your staff computer or student desktop
  • eVision
  • StudentMail and Staff WebMail
  • Staff Web Kiosk
  • Accessing your emails via Outlook or a device
  • WIFI access

When you change your password, your devices will still try to use the old one to authenticate to the server, so if you don’t log off and back on again with the new password, your account will eventually lock, removing your access for 30 minutes. If you have received an initial password (issued with your username), or have received a temporary password when your password details have been reset, please note that:

  • This will expire after seven days if it isn’t changed and;
  • It must be changed before you can log in to any University application

You can change your password through the Self-Service Password Management system [opens in a new window].

For the same reason above, any mobile devices (such as laptops, smartphones, or tablets) that you log in to will also continue to use the incorrect password when trying to authenticate your access, unless you change them too (or turn them off).
