If you have forgotten your login password you will need the assistance of the IT HelpDesk staff. Please go to the HelpDesk and one of the technicians will help you with creating a new login password.

I would like to change my password

If you still remember your password but would like to change it to something new, perform the steps below. Please note that you will need a PC for these steps so if you have a Mac or any other non-Windows machine you will need to go to the Library and use one of the PCs in there.

1. Login to a PC using your current credentials (ie your current school username and password).

2. At the keyboard, hold down the ‘CTRL‘ & ‘Alt‘ keys and then, while still holding down those two keys, press the ‘Delete‘ key (CTRl+Alt+Delete). A window like the one shown below will open
