Forgotten your username or password?

If you have forgotten your username or password, you will need to reset your password..

Need to change your password?

Changing your password regularly is good for security and for staff, we will ask you to change it every 180 days. Students do not have this requirement, but it is still good practise. It's important to change your password when we remind you, because if you don't we'll need to disable your account to keep it secure.

It is best practice to use a different password for each of your online accounts. If you have trouble remembering all of your passwords, you can use a password manager to securely store them in one place. Deakin recommends students and staff use LastPass. LastPass not only stores passwords, but lets you to generate new ones, too.
