MFA (Students)

Welcome to the Student MFA pages. The University uses Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for access to services such as email off-campus. This page contains more information on the service, and the steps that you should take before setting up MFA.

MFA is live for all DS accounbts by default and so you will most likely be prompted to sign up for MFA right away when accessing your account for the first time. If however, you arer not prompted or appear not to be on MFA, your account will be MFA enabled shortly and so you should register. 

Please visit the setup pages where you can find out how to register for MFA.
