AUK Account


How to get an Account: Student accounts will be created once you enroll/register at AUK. Your AUK student username is of the form of S000_ _ _ _, which is a common code for all AUK students. Students activate their accounts by logging in using the default password. AUK account gives you access to web-based, computing and network services at AUK (e.g. Portal, Windows Login, Email, and AUK Wi-Fi). Note: Self-service requires a different password to be created but the login ID remains the same (S000_ _ _ _). Your password is the key to access your account. You must always keep it secret.

Central Authentication: All AUK users (students, faculty and staff) can use active directory account (AUK user name and password) to access all network resources on campus.

Anti-Virus: Viruses, Malware, Trojans appear daily in the technology world. They can spread quickly across networks such as the Internet, causing huge destruction in the system. It is very important that you clean your computer from these infections, as failure to do so can result in the compromise of your banking details, credit/debit card information and the loss of your data (Pictures, Music, essays, etc.).

AUK Active Directory login: Active Directory (AD) is the Microsoft windows-based application that works as a directory service for managing network resources.It keeps information and settings for an organization in a central, easy-to-access database. It authenticates and authorizes all users (Staff, Faculty and Students) and computers in AUK network; in addition to assigning security policies for all computers and installing or updating software.

- As per AUK IT security policy, passwords are required to be changed every 6 months.
