Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a simple way to make your University login more secure and keep your personal information safe. It requires an extra step when you log in to some online services. This may be a mobile app notification or a code; just like online banking.

How to register 

It's best to use a separate phone and laptop/tablet whilst following the process.   

What do I need to do?

All members of the University must register their account for MFA. You only need to register once, it takes 5-10 minutes.

UG and PGT students can complete the steps any time before 14 June 2021. After this date, you must complete the registration process to access some online services. So, it’s best to do it in advance.

How to get help

Follow the step-by-step instructions to register for MFA.

If you need further support, please contact the IT Service Desk. 

(It's best to call using a different phone than the one you're trying to register with.)
