Important Notes on the use of password:

  1. The initial password for your network account and Office 365 EDU account is your matriculation number (with all alphabets in upper-case).

  2. The passwords for these 2 accounts are not related, so changing one password will have no effect on the other. Hence, you need to change the password for these 2 accounts separately.

  3. Please do not share your password with anyone, including NTU Service Desk staff when you seek help on IT-related matters.

  4. You must change your network account password before accessing any e-services. You will only be able to access StudentLINK services after you have matriculated online.
