On Thursday 23 July, we moved the University’s intranet from servers held on campus and into servers in the cloud. We now store and access our intranet data over the internet instead of from on premise, meaning that our intranet is better supported, more reliable and more resilient. This change helps us continue building strong foundations for our digital future, and better supports our global community.


As part of the move, we have introduced Microsoft Azure authentication which means that you will notice a small change to the way that you login to the intranet.


From 22 July, you will no longer type your email and password into the boxes on the University intranet login page. Instead, you will need to click the button ‘staff and student login (Sign in with AD FS)’.


You will then be taken to a standard Microsoft login page where you should enter your University email address and your University password. You will then be logged into the intranet as normal.


You can find further guidance on logging into the intranet using Microsoft Azure in our knowledge base article KB15016.
