Staff Computer Network Accounts
Logging-on to the network
To log a computer onto the computer network you will need to enter a username and a password.
If you are a new members of staff, these will normally be provided by your line manager, but it may also be possible to obtain them from the Help Desk at any of the Learning Resource Centres.
A staff member's username will normally comprise the first one or two letters of his/her first name followed by al of the letters of the surname without any spaces or punctuation.
eg: jobloggs dbeckham
Once you have logged on to the network with the issued password you should change it.
Changing your password
You may change your network password anytime simply by pressing the Ctrl / Alt / Del keys, and then selecting the 'Change a password' option from the menu.
Your chosen password will expire after about 90 days and will need to reset it.
If you forget your network password, then please contact a Learning Resources Help Desk.
Logging-off the network
To protect your work, you must make sure that you log yourself off the network once you have finished your work.
One way of doing this is to simply press the Ctrl, Alt, Delete keys, and then selecting the 'Sign out' option from the menu.
