Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) must be enabled on your account before you can access university IT services from an off-campus location. You only need to set it up once, and you can choose the authentication method you prefer - follow the instructions and set it up now. You can also forward your office phone to another phone number.

Keeping all you data secure

Staff and students are responsible for the security of their own personal information and devices. Members of staff are also are responsible for the security of all the data they may have access to. Failure to protect information is a serious offence and carries serious consequences, not just for the individuals involved and the university, but also for those whose data has been entrusted to the university.


The University's Information Assurance and Security Committee is responsible for
leading the University's information security programme and promote good information security governance, and to provide oversight of the University's data protection responsibilities including but not limited to compliance to the GDPR.
