Password Guidelines

It is very important that you never share your Maynooth University password with anyone.

You should choose a password that is both memorable, and secure. The shorter your password is, the more important it is to include mixed case, digits, and symbols.

We require the following:

  • Passwords must be at least 9 characters long.
  • The following symbols are permitted: space, underscore (_), dash/minus (-), full stop/period (.), exclamation point (!), question mark (?), asterisk/star (*), ampersand (&), at (@), caret/hat (^), plus (+), equals (=), less than (<), greater than (>), square braces ([ & ]), and curly braces ({ & })
  • Passwords less than 12 characters long should contain mixed case letters, digits, and symbols.
  • Passwords between 12 and 15 characters long (inclusive) should contain mixed case letters and digits.
  • Passwords between 16 and 19 characters long (inclusive) should contain mixed case letters.
  • Passwords 20 characters or longer can contain just a single case of characters.
