Your University login
Once you have enrolled you will need to set up a secure account to access computers and services provided by the University. You have a temporary password to allow you to access the system and as part of setting up your account you will be required to change this.
You will be asked to set three security questions that can be used as verification should you forget your password in the future (similar to the security for online banking). Be sure to click 'submit' when you have completed the questions.
Your username will be your university ID number, (shown on your student card).
Your password will be your date of birth in a 6-digit format, followed by the first 2 letters of your family name (with the first letter being a capital letter and the second letter being in lower case) and followed by the = sign.
(This example shows what your password would be if your family name is Farmer and your date of birth is 8 October 1986.)
After you have identified your login details, you MUST go to the user portal page to change your password, at: http://www.northampton.ac.uk/user
Your University login is used to access any computer on either campus, you will need it to access NILE (Northampton Integrated Learning Environment), to login to NELSON and to access the online resources the Library purchases.
