Make sure that when you are doing this via your student group email addresses rather than your personal or student email addresses as you will not have access if you try to sign in this way. If you have any problems with logging in, please click the 'forgot your login?' link at the bottom of the sign-in box. This will take you to a page where you can reset your password, just follow the instructions on how. If you are still having problems even after this, please contact
