Warning: 'Off-Campus Access' email scam - please delete

A number of University staff and students have received an email message purporting to be from the University Library with the subject “Off-Campus Access" and stating “Your off-campus access to electronic resources is expiring soon, therefore you must reactivate it immediately or it will be closed automatically.” It provides a link to reset your password.

Please delete this email.

The web page that the email directs you to has been reported and it blocked from being accessed by any computers on campus.

If you already visited the web page and entered your University account details, you must change your University password immediately. To change your University password, visit the Computing Services homepage at and follow the link to the secure password-change tool.

We are seeing an increase in the number of email viruses and scams at the holiday periods. Please be extra vigilant at this time of year. Guidance on what to do if you receive a suspicious email can be found on the Computing Services website:
