  1. You need to fill in at least two of the three options.

  2. We recommend that you use the phone and email options.


Password Security 

Your LSBU password will need to be changed regularly to ensure that the University’s systems are secure and this will enforced every 180 days. IT Services may also ask you to change your password at other times, for example if your account has been compromised. 

Please ensure that you access your email account regularly as this will help to ensure that passwords are updated when needed.

Passwords need to be complex, so follow all of the below principles. 

  • At least ten alphanumeric characters long 
  • Contain both upper- and lower-case characters e.g., a-z, A-Z 
  • Have numbers and punctuation characters as well as letters e.g., 0-9,!'#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[\]^_`{|}~ 
  • memorable for you, but difficult for someone to guess 

Please do not use the pound (£) or dollar ($) character as this is not compatible with some platforms. 

Self-Service Password Reset

Students with new accounts or who have not set up authentication methods previously, will be prompted to register their account with the Microsoft' self-service password reset' service when they log in to

Then, if you forget your password in the future, you will be able to easily reset it once you have registered two ways for Microsoft to contact you - for example an alternative email address and a mobile phone number.

Microsoft would then send you a security code to your backup email account or mobile phone and this will enable you to log in and change your password.  

Is this the password I use to login to LSBU systems? 

Yes, it is the password used for all LSBU main services (Office 365, Email, MyAccount, MyLSBU, Microsoft Teams, printing services, campus Wi-Fi and the Moodle VLE).

Once you have reset your password you will be able to access all your LSBU accounts in the usual way, using the new password.
