When you join the College as a member of staff or as a student, the College provides you with an I.T. account. In order to use most College I.T. devices, you’ll need to log in using this account.
In line with College IT Acceptable Use policies, you must use the username and password the College has provided you to access applications and devices, which include desktop PC’s, laptops or tablets. Your username and password are your user credentials and it’s your responsibility to keep these details safe.
On occasion, you’re asked for log-in credentials to access different applications. The application normally advises you which credentials you need to supply (sometimes applications have their own log-in credentials which are not your College IT username and password). For help with credentials on such applications, please speak to the administrative team for that system.
See our dedicated post for students on how to log in, especially if you’re new to the college.
We’ve written a post dedicated to help you manage and change your College IT password. Please note this will not cover systems/applications which do not use your I.T credentials.
Staff changing your passwords & working remotely
If you work off campus a lot or do work from home, setting up your Access Manager account is extremely important and saves disappointment when contacting IT Services for a password change without knowing your PIN number.
Accessing Moodle Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
For Bradford College staff and students, Moodle VLE uses the same username and password as your College IT account. There are no specific login credentials dedicated to Moodle for college staff and students.
For new students, you’ll need to change your first password before you can access Moodle. Visit how to log in for details.
You can also view more information about Moodle VLE on the Bradford College Moodle blog.
