Re-set Your Password

Coming Soon

We will shortly be enabling Self Service Password Reset (SSPR) on the Office 365 Portal.

This will allow you to register a recovery phone number and/or email address which you can then use to re-set your MU Password should you ever need to.

Password Guidelines

Important

  • Don't share your MU password with anyone
  • Don't re-use your MU password anywhere

You should choose a password that's both memorable, and secure. Good passwords are easy for humans to remember, yet hard for computers to guess. The best strategy is defence in length.

Our password policy only enforces length, but it's best to add in some complexity too, just do it in a way you'll find easy to remember.

Good

Better
