Student Email Access Problem – Use your Campus Account (Blackboard) password

Some students cannot access their student email account. Impacted students had two passwords – one password for their campus account (Blackboard) and a different password for their student email account. The change implemented on January 7th,   replaced a student’s email password with their Campus Account (Blackboard) password.

If you cannot access your student email account, please ensure you are using your Campus Account (Blackboard) password to log in to your student email account.

If you have forgotten your Campus Account password, you can reset your password using CASS –https://cass.nuigalway.ie.

Should you experience any further difficulties, please contact the Service Desk on 091 495777 Email servicedesk@nuigalway.ie

Increase in Thefts of Bikes from NUI Galway

The Gardai have been in touch with us regarding the increase in bike thefts from NUI Galway. They warned that students using inferior, cheap locks are leaving themselves open to theft. If you are leaving your bike overnight or over the weekend please use the Bike Compound near the Bank of Ireland. This compound is purpose built, accessible only with your ID card and near the University Security office. Please invest in a good lock for your bike and take a note of the serial number on your bike so that you can report this to the guards in the event that it is stolen.
