New staff computing accounts

When you start at UoN you are allocated a six digit staff number in our HR and Payroll system. This will be included in the letter sent to you before you start. Your manager or supervisor can give you your staff number on your first day, if you don't have the letter.

You use this staff number to create your unique Uni-ID and password, which are your key to accessing our computers and online systems.

Follow the steps below:

  1. Open the NUaccess Activate User Account utility for Staff.

  2. Enter your Staff Number and Date of Birth.
  3. Click the checkbox beside “I’m not a robot”. A Captcha test will appear.
  4. Complete the Captcha test by clicking all appropriate images that meet the request at the top of the test and then click Verify.
  5. Click Next once you have successfully completed the Captcha test.
  1. The Terms and Conditions of Use page will now be displayed. You must accept the University Computing and Communications Facilities Terms and Conditions in order to finish activating your account and access any University systems or services.
