What Office365 gives you

Our email system, Office365 offers:

  • a larger capacity in your mailbox
  • the ability to send attachments up to 25mb internally, although external providers (Hotmail, Googlemail etc) will still limit attachments to 10mb.
    If you find that you need to send bigger attachments on a regular basis, contact the IT Service Desk for advice

Guide to using Office365

How to change your email password

You use your Network username and password to access Office365. So, to change your email password, you actually need to change your Network password.

You should have already registered for the Student Password Reset Service. This offers you an automated reset service.

To use the service, go to password reset service and follow the instructions.

If you have not registered, please register now. You will be asked to enter a secret question and answer. After registering (please allow 15 minutes for the registration process to complete), you will be able to change your password using the automated service.

Rules about setting a password

Your password must not contain any part of your name. It must contain at least eight characters and must include at least three of the following four criteria: some lower case a to z letters, some upper case A to Z letters, some numbers between 0 (zero) and 9, a non-alphanumeric character, such as £, / or %.
