All users of the Institute’s PC network need to have a username (often called
a User ID) and password. When you enrol and are issued with a student card you will
also be issued with a letter which tells you what your User ID is, what your initial
password is, and what you need to do with them so that you can log on to the network.
The password on the letter needs to be changed the first time you log on. If you
don’t change it, you will be unable to logon next time.
You can go to the Customer Service Centre at any campus and ask for your logon/password
to be reset. You will need to have your Student Card with you to identify yourself,
or another form of photo ID.
Upon enrolment students are issued an email account for communicating with staff
and other students. The details of your email address will be issued with your username
It will consist of your firstname.lastname@example.org
