Important 2-factor authentication login changes for PhD students

From Tuesday 23 October 2018, postgraduate research students logging in to the Outlook Web App (OWA) will need to use 2-factor authentication.

In addition to entering your University username and password, you will need to verify your identity through something that you have with you – your 2-factor device. The login process is different depending on your chosen authentication method, but the easiest way to do it is by using the Duo Mobile app on a smartphone.

You can find out how to use the different authentication methods with our handy guide.

Some of you are already using 2-factor authentication and are all set up. For those who don’t, you need to register with Duo, our 2-factor authentication provider.

For more information about 2-factor authentication, including how to get set up with Duo, and frequently asked questions, visit the IT Services website.
