New accounts for staff

How do I request an account for a new member of staff?

There is no need to request accounts for University employees, as IT accounts for staff are set up automatically based on the information stored on the Personnel system (ResourceLink).

Every new member of staff is provided with a Windows (PC login) account, an e-mail address and mailbox, and a printing account.

The new starter’s username and password will be automatically e-mailed to their line manager as recorded in ResourceLink.

If Blackboard access is required, this must be arranged through their Faculty.

Accounts for new staff are set up so that the new starter must change their password the first time they log on. For staff who will be working remotely this may not be possible: please contact Information Services via 3800 to have this restriction removed.

All new staff should be aware of the University IT Regulations.

If access to other systems is required please e-mail 3800 for the appropriate form for completion.
If you have any other queries please contact the Information Services Support centre t:-01785 353800 or e:-
