Once you have responded to your contract, activated your University IT account and set up Multi-Factor Authentication you will be able to get connected and access essential services.

Set up Multi-Factor Authentication

Once your IT account is activated, you must set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on it.

MFA provides an extra layer of security when you log in to some University applications, including Office 365 (e.g. Outlook, Teams), CoreHR, and VPN (for access to specific applications from off campus).

Once you have set up MFA you will be able to generate One-Time Passwords (OTPs) to enter if prompted when logging in to applications that use MFA. If you don’t set up MFA you may be unable to access some University applications until you have set it up.
