Change your password every year

Help secure your own work and the UGent IT infrastructure: change your password every year!


Our password policy requires you to change your UGent account password every year.

Change your password via

Self-service reset

Haven't changed your UGent password for a long time? You will receive a notification via e-mail.

You will then have 3 weeks to change your password. If you fail to do so, your password will be blocked.

In that case, you will only be able to log in again to the UGent services after you have set a new password via the self-service password reset.
