Service Description

Student network accounts are created for all students studying on a course on one of the four main campuses, and are maintained in a single student directory service providing authenticated access to SITL desktop, wireless and online services such as Blackboard Learn, Library catalog, Athens and the Student online Portal.

In addition, students are allocated an Office 365 email account and associated OneDrive online data storage service. Students may use their accounts as long as they are registered for their course of study. Access is removed when they leave. The exception to this is the Office 365 email account and OneDrive allocation which remain live after students leave.

Network accounts are managed according to registration status and are created when students are eligible to enrol. During the account lifecycle, access is suspended in cases where there are Fees or disciplinary issues, but re-established once resolved.

A self service online password change facility is available for forgotten passwords, or if they simply wish to change it. Passwords may also be changed during logged in sessions at the SITL desktop, or via a kiosk situated at the campus Library.

This is based upon the Policy Implementation Framework

Business Process

Student network account details are obtained during initial online enrolment and may also be accessed via the student kiosk.
