Over the last few years, we’ve been taking steps to make your University accounts and your data more secure. We are now continuing this work by rolling out Google two-factor authentication to all student email/Google accounts.
This applies to all students - including all undergraduates, postgraduate taught students, postgraduate researchers, international students, students on a leave of absence and students on placement.
You need to set up Google two-factor authentication on your University account before Tuesday 22 March. The process will normally take less than 10 minutes.
