Cloud/Portal Account (OKTA), Local Wireless Password, Lexis, Westlaw

Once admitted to Seton Hall Law School, students are provided with a primary Cloud/Portal account to access cloud and print resources such as our University Portal (OKTA), Microsoft email, OneDrive storage, Blackboard, Teams, BluePrint printing and other Microsoft 365 services, and a 2nd local account to access wireless on our Seton Hall Law wireless network...

For both accounts, your username is the same code...  which is an 8 letter code usually consisting of the first 6 letters of your LAST name and the first 2 of your FIRST name. If your last name is less than 6 letters then your code is your entire last name and as much of your first name as needed to reach 8 letters. (Ex: SMITHJOE for Joe Smith).  If your last and first name together do not consist of 8 letters, then use your entire last name and entire first name. (Ex. BELLJOE for Joe Bell).  If your last name is a common name, your shortname may have already been taken by another SHU student so your pattern may be the first 6 of your last name, then the 1st letter of your first name...  then a number..  (Ex: MILLERS1 for Stephen Miller) 

Your first time password for your cloud account is a combination of the first 4 letters of your last name in CAPITAL letters, then the last 6 numbers of your Student ID, then 4 pound signs "####" . (Ex. LAST000000####)  If your last name is 4 letters or less, please use the first 2 letters of your last name and the first 2 letters of your first name in CAPs, then the last 6 numbers of your Student ID, then 4 pound signs "####" 

For your Cloud/Portal account, a 2nd factor authentication is required called DUO.  Please complete the DUO configuration setup process when prompted.

Your password for your local wireless account is a combination of the first 4 letters of your last name in CAPITAL letters, then the last 4 numbers of your Student ID, then 2 pound signs "##" . (Ex. LAST0000##)   If your last name is 4 letters or less, please use the first 2 letters of your last name and the first 2 letters of your first name in CAPs, then the last 4 numbers of your Student ID, then 2 pound signs "##"...

Please note that while your cloud account and local account have the same username, they are separate accounts, with separate passwords.  Changing the password on one account does not change the password on the other.  This is by design, as your local account is for local wireless and managed inside the law building, while your cloud account is intended for cloud services and managed outside the law building. Please note that each account has a different password change schedule...
