The Staff Portal is a personalised application providing users with easy access to many of the online services provided by the University such as Online Mileage, Prior Approval, Self Service Banner, library services and Blackboard Learn.

Once logged into the Portal, you can access all these online services without the need to enter further usernames and passwords via "Single Sign On" functionality.

The Portal also acts as a point of focus for messages sent to you by your faculty and announcements from other University departments.

If you are prompted to login to some of the resources in the portal, please ensure you use your E-Code/A-Code and network password.
