What is my Laurier username and password?

Your Laurier username is the first four letters of your last name followed the last four digits of your student number. When logging in, do not append "" to the end of your username. If you have never changed your Laurier password before, then your default password is your date if birth in the format of MMDDYYYY.

Guidelines to Password Selection and Maintenance

The purpose of passwords is to prevent unauthorized people from accessing user accounts and the system in general. The basic selection principle is that passwords should be easy to remember but hard to guess or crack. Even if you feel that you do not have anything important on your account, you should be aware that getting onto a system via any account is the first step for unauthorized system access. The account that opens the door may not be of interest except as a point to launch an attack on the system in general. Your password is the primary defence against unauthorized access to both your private information and that of the university.
