How to log on to the LSE Network

You must activate your IT account before you can log on to the LSE network.

Please remember: Your network password is your only protection against other users logging on to the network with your username and accessing the files and documents on your network file space (H: space) as well as your email. Please keep your password safe and secure. See our tips for choosing a strong password.

Getting started

  1. Choose a free computer. Press any key, or move the computer mouse, to display the Welcome to Windows dialog box

    Note: if the Welcome to Windows dialog box does not appear, press the power button to turn the PC on.

    : if the previous user is still logged on, please find another computer. If the computer appears to be faulty, please take a note of the PC name and location and report it to IMT on extension 6728.
  2. Press the [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Delete] keys on your keyboard.
  3. You will see a Conditions of Use message. When you have read and understood this, click OK.

    The Windows 7 Log On screen is displayed.

  4. Enter the username and password assigned to you when you activated your IT account by completing the self-registration process.
  5. Press the [Enter] key on your keyboard or click on the OK button.

    Note: During the logon process, two windows with black backgrounds are displayed on the screen which will close automatically. DO NOT click in these windows or try to close them - if you do, you may not be able to access your email or other network facilities. Wait for these windows to close before continuing.
  6. After a few moments, log on is completed and the Windows desktop is displayed. You now have access to the LSE network.
