Having trouble with your Monash account?

Activating your account

See our step-by-step guide to activating your Monash account from activation to setting up multi-factor authentication (MFA) and other handy self-service options. We strongly recommend you take up the self-service option for back-up codes and password reset - this can save you a lot of time if you forget your password or lose your phone.

Android users setting up MFA from China may encounter problems. Please see the help page at register for MFA from China.

Multi-factor authentication backup codes

If you get locked out of your account because your phone is lost, damaged, or replaced, or if you’ve accidentally deleted the Okta Verify app, you can now use a backup code to reset your MFA and get back into your account.

Password problems?

For any password problems, visit Identity Management Services. You'll also find how to register to change your own password.

Need more help?

If you're still experiencing issues creating an account and/or accessing your email, contact the Service Desk for help.

Had a previous Monash account or offer?

If you've received a previous offer and already have a Monash account, you don't need to create a new one - go straight to step 2.

Using your Monash account and email

Use your account to access your email, class timetable, my.monash portal, course materials, the library and the Web Enrolment System (WES).

We delete your account if you don't complete your enrolment, so make sure you enrol by the deadline.

Email

To access your Monash mail account log into my.monash

Your Monash account is the only email the University will use to communicate with you. You should check it at least twice a week so you don't miss important messages about your enrolment or studies.
