A password is a secret word or string of characters that is used for authentication, to prove your identity or get access to a resource.
You can access most online facilities and resources using your current student ID and the password you created.
- not contain your student number, or any part of your name
- be between eight and 16 characters long
- include at least one letter, one uppercase character, one number and one special character (ie %, ! * or similar).
Do not share your password with anyone. You may be held responsible for any actions that arise from the misuse of your account.
If you know your password, and want to change it to something else, you can do so anytime, anywhere by using the NUaccess Change Known Password utility for Students.
