UKZN LAN password

Students require an activated student LAN account to access UKZN email, UKZN Student central, and other campus resources. 

New student LAN accounts have a default password based on the day, month, and year of the student’s birthdate. 

For example, if the birthdate is 3rd January 1999, the default password would be “stu03011999”. This password expires the first time used and must be changed immediately to one of the student’s choice. Procedure Change the default password FIRST! 

Students using a university computer on campus are prompted to change the password immediately. 

Remote students who cannot log in on a university computer must change the default LAN password FIRST before they log in anywhere else, including Learning@UKZN Failure to do so will result in an expired default password that is no longer valid. 

To change the default password:

  1. Go to password.ukzn.ac.za with a web browser.
  2. Log in using the default password.
  3. Set a new LAN password, which will remain valid for ninety days. This site can be used to change a correct password at any time.
