It is time for your annual password change @UM

At the beginning of 2019, we all set a new password that was valid for a maximum period of one year. The introduction of the new password policy was phased in to ensure that people would not all need to change their password at the same time one year later.

However, due to the cyberattack in December 2019, we were all forced to change our passwords again on 2 January 2020. This means that the current password will expire almost simultaneously for most employees and students in January 2021.

Tent 1 available as study space as of Monday 2 November

FASoS has decided to use tent 1 as study space as of Monday 2 November to create more opportunities for students to study on campus. The study space is open from 8.45 – 17.00 from Mondays through Fridays.

Please note that a maximum of 30 people can be in the study space at once. The study space is meant for individual studying. Make sure your electronic devices are charged because there are no power plugs in the tent. Please refer to the entire list of house rules here.

Student Portal or Canvas … where to go?

The original set-up was for students to log into Student Portal so they could find their courses, announcements, due dates, grades and other course details (for more information, see here). Upon selecting Course Details in the Student Portal, the student would be redirected to Canvas (this happens in the background, so as a student you do not actually see or notice it).
