IT Guidance - Current Students

Two-factor authentication is when a user must provide two or more pieces of evidence to verify their identity to gain access to an app or digital resource.

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is used to protect against hackers by ensuring that digital users are who they say they are.

All staff and students will have 2fA activated on their Office 365 account. This means when you log into your email, teams, or the college’s staff or student SharePoint portals, externally, you will be asked to authenticate.

Note this is only an external process. On college grounds, you will be able to log in the same as usual.
