Lost password?

If you have problems with your IT accounts – such as a forgotten password – you should be able to solve these through the Manage your Oxford Single Sign-On account or Self-Registration websites. Try this first before contacting the Service Desk. If you are confused about which IT account should be used for which services read our Your University accounts page.
