Change your password

Your IT account password protects the security of information and the computing service as a whole. Your University user account must only be used by you and you must not disclose your password to anyone or write it down.

You can change your password if you have an internet connection from the webpage - 

Security questions

When you first change your password you will be asked to provide answers to three questions. If you forget your password, click on the forgotten password link, enter your email address and answer the questions.

Password reset

If you have forgotten your password and the answers to the security questions, you can request that your password be reset by visiting the IT Service Desk in person with your ID card or, alternatively, by e-mailing
