Not received the text message ? This will have been sent to the mobile number specified on your application. This may be your parent or guardian’s mobile number – so check with them before getting in touch !

Changing your password

Once you have successfully logged into Microsoft 365, you should change your password. To change your password, follow the steps below:

Step 1
Click/tap on your account picture/Initials in the top right hand corner.

Step 2
Click on the view account link.

Step 3

Choosing a strong password

You must use a strong password to protect your college account. Use the following guidelines to create a strong password:

  • Combine three random words (e.g. Yellow, Car, Potato)
  • Include a number, upper-case character and special character (yellowCar4potato!)
  • Ensure this password is unique to your college account (you must not re-use this password elsewhere).

Never disclose this password to anyone. IT Services will never ask you for your password.
