If you forget your password, you have 3 options on how to get a new password.
- Go to the password self service portal from the login window on a UCL pc.
- Go to the password self service portal from a private pc.
- Contact IT-ServiceDesk (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 6318 4444).
Using option 1 or 2 requires that your mobile phone number is registered in SIS - Student Counselling Services can help you do that - or that you have configured OTP (One Time Password) - see instructions to setup OTP here.
