Which login details do I use for which systems?

Moving to multi-factor authentication
From 2021 onwards, RMIT is gradually changing the login process for all University systems from requiring RMIT ID and password to requiring RMIT email address, password and MFA. This change will add an extra layer of protection to keep our data and networks more secure.

RMIT email address, password and MFA

The following systems, require RMIT email address, password and MFA:

  • Microsoft 365 (M365) applications including Outlook Email (RMIT's email platform), Teams, OneDrive, SharePoint and Yammer
  • myDesktop
  • Enrolment Online

An easy way to tell is the login screen you see when you access all these systems is the Microsoft Sign in Portal (login.microsoftonline.com).

RMIT ID and password

All other RMIT systems, currently require RMIT ID and password, including:

  • Canvas
  • myTimetable

The login screen for these systems is the RMIT MyApps Portal (myapps.rmit.edu.au) or Central Authentication Service (sso-cas.rmit.edu.au).

Temporary password

Your temporary password is the letter 'p' followed by your date of birth backwards, with an exclamation mark '!' at the end.

Example: If your date of birth is 8 April 1998, then your password is p19980408!

Log in to the Self-Service Password Reset system using your RMIT email address OR RMIT ID and temporary login password, and change your password to something hard to guess but easy to remember. Find out how to create a strong password.

Set up your self-service details – that way, if you ever forget your password, you can reset it yourself online.

  1. Create your challenge questions and answers
  2. Make sure your mobile and personal email contact details are correct. To check and edit your personal details, follow the relevant instructions below.

To reset your password, you may choose to have a password reset code sent to the personal email address or mobile phone number you provide to RMIT. For information about the handling of your personal information, please go to RMIT Privacy Statement.

Some RMIT systems and applications also require multi-factor authentication (MFA) to log in.

That's it, you're all set up and ready to use RMIT systems! For easy access to all RMIT student systems, see the Student essentials section at the top of the Current students homepage.
