Change my password? (Network and/or Email)

There are two ways that Avila users can change their Network and mail password.

At Avila – when on campus:

When logged on to a computer while on campus, you change your password by pressing the Ctrl+Alt+Del keys simultaneously. This will display the window shown below. Note: Your User Name will appear instead of davenpostsm , which was used in this example.

Select the “Change Password” button. On the next window follow the prompts entering your current (or old ) password once, and a new password, then again to confirm it.


Away from Avila – when away from campus

Take note Avila employees away from campus for an extended stay (e.g. Summer months).  

For those email users working remotely (e.g. from home) using the email web interface OWA (or Outlook Web Access),  you can change your password from within OWA.   Just click on “Options” near the bottom left-hand-corner.   You will then need to scroll down until you see the “Change Password” button.  Select this and an “Avila University – Password Reset” window will appear.

Follow the prompts.   Enter your username in the box labeled “Account” (e.g. davenportsm, gartengf, etc. ) .   Supply your Old password, New password, then Confirm the new password.    You’re done.   (Click here for an image of this)

You’ve remotely changed the password for both your Email and your Network logins.  Remember that this password will also be needed for your next computer Network login the next time you’re on campus at Avila .    If you forget your password, contact Information Technology Services for a password reset.   After validating your identity, we’ll provide you with a temporary password which you can then update.
