Welcome to IT

Welcome to IT and computing at the University of Leeds! There are lots of great things you can now take advantage of. Here are a few things we don't want you to miss.

Before you arrive

Complete the IT Induction
This can be completed at your own pace and gives an overview of all things IT at Leeds.

Get your username and password
This will be your gateway to all the systems at Leeds, so keep the details safe. You can also change your password here to something easier to remember.

Download your free copy of Microsoft Office
This is free for the whole of your time at the University. Login with your username@leeds.ac.uk and click Install Now.

Download the UniLeeds App for iOS or Android
Access your timetable, campus maps, find available computers, search the library and much more.

When you get here

Get online
The University uses the Eduroam Wireless network. It’s fast, secure and works at different universities too! Login with your username@leeds.ac.uk and your usual password. If you’re staying in Halls of Residence, there’ll be a Get Connected booklet in your room when you arrive with lots more information.

Printing (and computer Clusters)
Printers are available on campus in most computer rooms (Clusters). To print when you get here, you will need to setup your MyPrint PIN. Then you can print documents you’ve sent to the printer (such as your registration certificate). Once you’ve got your student card, you can swipe it at the printer without needing the PIN. Instructions are next to each printer if you need them and more information can be found here.
