Email and Single Sign on (SSO) Accounts
Your University card is usually setup before you arrive at New College either through the Tuition Office or the HR Office. This card creates your SSO and email account. You should receive an activation code from University IT Services which you can use to enable your account. If you do not receive this please drop into the IT Office in 12OB2 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Intranet - SharePoint
All academic information relating to students and Academic Staff is held on the New College SharePoint site. You will need your SSO credentials to login. If you do not have permissions to certain sub sites or pages please request it via the SharePoint site. The recommended browser for SharePoint is Internet Explorer but Google Chrome is also functional unless you require integration with Microsoft Office products.
Wireless network access is available throughout the college campus. You can connect to Eduroam using your Remote Access Account credentials. On the University IT Services pages you can find an Eduroam configuration guide and a helpful configuration tool which you can download. Eduroam is available throughout the University and Colleges so it can be a useful tool if you are moving around.
