Password changes

If you know your password but you want to update it, there’s a few different ways to do this. The recommended method will depend on where you are and which device you’re using.

Your University account password should be strong and different from all of your other passwords. This will make it harder to crack or guess. Using 3 random words is a good way to create a strong, unique password that you will remember.

For example:

On Christmas Day in 1983 I got Star Wars presents so a memorable password could be: Christmas@1983starwars

Your password must contain at least 8 characters, a number, and a capital letter.

Off-campus / via Wifi / MacOS users

If you’re off-site, connected to Eduroam or you’re a MacOS user you can reset your password using the following link:

  1. Enter your old password
  2. Enter a suitable password
  3. Select Submit to confirm the change

On-campus via corporate wired network (Windows devices)

If you’re on-site and connected to our corporate wired network using a University of Worcester Windows device you can reset your password by following the instructions below:

  1. Select ‘Ctrl, Alt & Delete’ simultaneously on your keyboard
  2. Choose Change password from the menu
  3. Enter your new password

Alternatively, please contact the IT Service Desk on 01905 85 7500. Please ensure you have your staff or student ID number prepared.

It is important you keep your password safe and do not tell anyone what it is. If for any reason you believe someone has accessed your account, or you have inadvertently given your password details to someone, change your password immediately and contact the IT Service Desk.
