I have changed my University password - what other action do I need to take?

After you have changed your University password, you may need to take some further action:
  • If you have a Windows PC/laptop you are advised to restart your computer, otherwise you may not be able to print until you have done so
  • Mac users are advised that they should also change the keychain password on their Mac. Instructions on this process are found at 
    How do I change  my password on a University Mac?

    If you have the colour or mono queue in your keychain, you will need to change this as well
  • Please note that you will also need to re-enter your new password for services such as eduroam wireless network and for email on your mobile devices.     
  • If you have a non-University PC/laptop you may need to update your printing settings.  
    • Go to the Start Menu > Control Panel > Credential Manager
    • You should see either staff.printing or anywhere.printing listed. You need to edit your password there to your new one
