Trinity Computer Account Terms and Conditions

Account Entitlements

Registered staff and students identified by Trinity as being entitled to computer accounts are granted access to IT Services computer facilities. To use these facilities a username and password is required.

All entitled users with a Trinity computer account may logon to any computer on the Trinity data network, PC or Mac. This provides access to and use of various internet and network services such as internet access, Trinity email, personal filestorage and get and put folders. Other special purpose services, including webauthor accounts, are available to users who fulfill certain criteria.

Our username and passwords pages outline the various different passwords you might need in accessing the different services, and how to change these passwords.

Account Holder Responsibilities

  • You must adhere to the University's code of conduct in computer usage
  • You are responsible for the username and password that has been assigned to you
  • If you suspect your username/password has been compromised you must change your password immediately and report your concerns to the IT Service Desk
  • You should accord with best practice when deciding on a password


Queries in relation to certain IT account entitlements e.g. if no email address has been provisioned or if you are not included on a departmental mailing list, may need to be directed to Human Resources. Access to certain IT services in Trinity is determined by the details in your record on the Human Resources system. HR will be able to confirm your current coding on their system and the associated entitlements. In some cases your Head of Department may need to request further entitlements from HR on your behalf. Once your record has been updated on the HR system then your IT account and access to relevant IT services will be automatically updated within 72 hours.
