If you cannot remember your password, please go to iForgot to retrieve or reset it. If you have not enrolled in iForgot, please contact the ICT Department to reset your password and enroll in iForgot afterwards.



On the first login to a Google Apps account, you must accept the terms, and may be presented with a CAPTCHA prompt.

A CAPTCHA is a type of challenge-response test used as an attempt to ensure that the response is generated by a human rather than a computer. A common type of CAPTCHA requires the user to type letters and/or digits from a distorted image that appears on the screen. Such tests are commonly used to prevent unwanted internet bots from accessing websites.

Please complete the CAPTCHA details if prompted and proceed with the login.
