It's time to change your password

As Reading Week approaches, here is a timely reminder to change your network password.  You use your network password to log onto ITB PCs, to access Moodle, to access email, to print / photocopy etc.

Network passwords must be changed every 100 days. So change it now to ensure you can log in over Reading Week.

You can change your password as follows:

(1) Before it expires: change your password at any ITB PC.  Press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and select the option to change your password

(2) Before or after it expires: bring your student card to SID (9.15am - 5pm, Tu-F) or the Library Desk (5pm - 6pm, Tu-Th)

(3) After it expires: sign up for password recovery before your password expires.  Then you can recover your password from off-campus should it ever expire.  You can register here and recover your password here.

(4) After it expires: there us a SMS Password Recovery service available to students who cannot come to campus.  Call 1518  415090 and follow the directions.  There is a €3.00 charge for this service; the charge will be added to your telephone bill/taken from your phone credit

Remember, the best option is to change your password, at an ITB PC, before it expires.  But always have a backup plan, i.e. sign up for password recovery before you need it!
