Passwords


What do I do if I forget my password?

To reset your password, please visit the College of Engineering forgot password page.  If you set your account up to enable password resets, you'll be able to reset your password by following the instructions there.

If this doesn't work, you'll need to visit the Help Desk located in Harold Frank Hall, room 1140E. Please bring a picture ID.

 

How do I change my password?

If you know your password and you just want to change it to something else, please visit the account maintenance page here: https://accounts.engr.ucsb.edu/maintain/. To change your password, go to  and click on the Change Password link. Note that your password will change about 30 minutes after changing it on the website.

 

How do I choose a good password?

Choose a password that is at least eight characters in length. The best passwords include a mix of letters, numbers, and special characters. Here are some examples of good and bad passwords:

Bad

Good

donuts

d)nu7$!

1234five

sm00/eD

myname00

.44ma9nm

You can build your password around a phrase that is easy to remember. For example, say your favorite short story was Bartleby, the Scrivener by Herman Melville. You could use this to build several potential passwords:

b4rt1eBe or bts-HMvl or Scri>3nr
