Staff and PGR email

Changes coming to keep your email secure

As part of the University's Cyber Security Programme, we are introducing 2-factor authentication which will protect our staff and PGR student email accounts. This will change the way we login from Tuesday 21 November 2017 and will require all staff and PGR students to get set up in advance, to continue to access email.
