Upcoming changes to login.athabascau.ca
In the coming weeks, we’ll be making some changes to our main sign in page at login.athabascau.ca.
These change include updating the page theme to match the rest of the Athabasca University website, some behind the scenes technical updates to help keep the sign in process secure, and introducing self-serve password resets via email.
The self-serve password reset function will use the preferred email address we have on file for your account. For students, this will be your Office 365 @athabasca.edu address if you’ve activated it, or the personal email address you’ve provided to us. For staff, the password reset system will use your staff email address.
We encourage students to activate their Office 365 account and email address as it is free and allows you to install Microsoft Office on up to 5 personal computers. More information on Office 365 for Students can be found at http://office365.athabascau.ca.
We are currently completing the final testing of these changes to ensure a smooth transition. We’ll be announcing the date that the new sign in page will be put in place soon.
