University card and Single Sign on (SSO)

If you have a University card you will automatically be assigned a university email address.  Your email account is part of your single sign on account which allows you access to many facilities within the University.  Your single sign on and email username will take the form of unit name plus four numbers - for example newc0000.

Single sign on services are run by Oxford University IT Services

We can help you reset any lost passwords for your Single Sign on account but we do not administer or make changes to your account.    If you need to reset your password this must be done in person during our opening hours and you must bring your University card.

Your email address is set up using your first name, surname and then unit name for example.
