Activating your IT account

For security reasons you will only be able to activate your IT account once, so please read these instructions very carefully. You will be able to log on with your own username/password 15 minutes after following this procedure.

You must know your LSE student number before you can activate your IT account. This number is printed on your ID card and on all of your LSE correspondence.

  1. Go to any public computer in the LIbrary. Press the [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Delete] keys simultaneously
  2. You will see a Conditions of Use message. When you have read and understood this, click OK to go to the Windows 7 Log On screen
  3. Type SELFREG for both the username and password (case sensitive) and click the right arrow icon (or press Enter) to access the account activation system

  4. Complete the account activation form by typing the requested information
  5. You will be asked to choose a password for your network account. Follow the on-screen instructions for creating a valid password. You will not be able to activate your IT account unless you agree to the IT Conditions of Use.
  6. Your username and email address will appear on the screen. You may want to make a note of these details. For security, please do not write down your password

If the activation procedure fails, please visit the IT Helpdesk located in the IMT Walk In Centre, Library 1st Floor.
