Staff passwords and NUaccess
NUaccess is the University of Newcastle's computer account management system.
NUaccess provides a self-service reset facility if you have forgotten or want to change your password.
To take advantage of the reset facility, you must first answer a set of authentication questions. When you next use the self-service password reset, you will be asked to answer a randomly selected subset of the authentication questions.
The authentication questions, along with a series of strict password rules, will help protect you from security breaches.
Remember, you may be held accountable for actions that arise from the misuse of your account/s.
