Study SupportsWIT Username versus Email Account

WIT Username versus Email Account

Every student in WIT is entitled to a WIT computer and email account on registering with the Institute.

You need a username and a password to access very many facilities at WIT.  Your username for logging in will be your student number (without the W at the beginning) e.g. [email protected] Passwords are sent out on your registration letter but if you have lost that letter or have forgotten your password, you can call to Computer Services with your student card and we will print it out for you.  Unfortunately, for security reasons, and in compliance with GDPR legislation, we cannot give you your password over the phone and we can only give the password out to the owner of the account. It is a good idea to make a note of your original password in your phone or somewhere else as you may need to refer back to it over the course of your studies at WIT

Remember that your password is case sensitive so if, for example, your password is in small letters, it must be entered in, in small letters otherwise it will not work. 

For further information, please contact the Computer Services Department by email at our address, [email protected]

Moodle
