Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) will be required for all staff and students who wish to access services such as Office 365, Moodle, Apps Anywhere when not on the campus network. This will be turned on for all students on the 16th of November 2022.

MFA provides added security to your account, ensuring that it cannot be used without your knowledge.

When MFA is enabled on the 16th of November 2022, you will be prompted to confirm your identity by a separate method - typically through a code provided by text message to your mobile phone or via the Microsoft Authenticator app.

Without access to your physical mobile device, remote attackers can’t pretend to be you to gain unauthorised access to your account.

You will receive a MFA prompt when logging on to the following services from off campus:

  • Office 365
  • Moodle
  • Apps Anywhere
