How do I find out my username and password by amberp


									How do I find out my username and password?

You may use one of the eMac computers to find out your username and password (the eMacs are the
white computers).

Logon to the computer using the username “newuser” with no password. The newuser webpage will
then be loaded. Enter your Student ID number and the last 8 digits of your library barcode (these can
both be found on your student ID card). After you have submitted this information the page will display
your username and allow you to set a password for your account.

After you have set up your account click on the “services” link, this will take you to the Services Page
where you can enable web access and printing for your account. To logout, please double click the
logout button.

How do I logon to a PC?

Enter in your username and password. Make sure that “Log on to:” is set to “WAIKATO”. Click on “OK”.

How do I logon to a Mac?

Enter in your username and password, click “Log in”. After you have logged in another password box
will come up, enter your password into this box, this will authenticate you to print.

Where should I save my work?

You should save your work to your ‘studhome’, this is a networked folder that is accessible from any
computer that you use in the University. Your studhome folder will be named with your username.

-On a PC your studhome will be inside My Computer.
-On a Mac your studhome will be on your desktop.

Can I access Studhome from home (off campus)?

Yes, you can access your Studhome from anywhere off campus through the following website:

What about Floppy Disks?

Students should be wary of using floppy disks as their only means of saving work, as this medium is
unreliable. Students that choose to use floppy disks must accept responsibility for supporting their own
disks. While some computers in the various labs have floppy disk drives available for student use, this
will not be the case in the future. The School encourages all SoE students to use ‘studhome’ as their
primary storage/backup facility.

How do I print?

Before you can print you must enable printing for your account (see How do I find out my username
and password). You can print to the printer in the corridor of the Information Centre, this is charged at
10c per page.

For colour printing contact either Campus Copy or the Information Commons. Campus Copy has two
locations, near the Pharmacy in the Student Union Building, and in the SOE Café. The Information
Commons is located in Level One of the Central Library.

Do I have access to the Internet / Email?

Yes, but you must enable internet access before you can use it (see How do I find out my username
and password). You will be charged 10c per megabyte for external websites.
