Change my UniKey password

Creating a password that is difficult to guess improves the security of your account. Your new UniKey password must:

  • contain both upper and lower case letters and at least one number
  • be eight characters long
  • not contain non-English characters, the ampersand character (&), the space character ( ) or the 'less than' character (<)
  • not be based on an English word or contain your UniKey.

For ideas on how to create a strong password, staff members should visit ICT Ask Sydney. If you are a student, please visit the Student IT website.

To change your UniKey password you need to:

  1. Set all your peripheral devices to Aeroplane Mode to ensure both Wi-Fi and 3G are off.
  2. Change your password below:
    • Type your UniKey in the UniKey field
    • Type your current UniKey password in the Old password field
    • Type your new UniKey password in the New password field
    • Type your new UniKey password in the Confirm new password field
    • Click Submit new password
  3. If you are using a University computer, restart it and log in with your new UniKey password. If the new password doesn't work, wait for 10 minutes and try again.
  4. Turn off Aeroplane Mode and use your new UniKey password to reconnect to the UniSydney wireless network and email application (if applicable).
