The computer account has three components – UserID (User Name), Domain and Password. The domain for students is NUSSTU. You are strongly advised to change your password upon the first successful login.

For Windows users, you can change your password by pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL, select Change Password and follow the system prompts. For non-Windows users, you can visit Microsoft Outlook Web Access and select Change NUSNET Password.
