Off campus users' guide to the LRCs

How to obtain full access to LRC Online resources

In order to access all resources you will need to activate your student account.  This is a one-off process and, due to security measures, will need to be done by phone.

Please phone the IT helpdesk on 01623 627191 ext 8001 and give your student number (found on your enrolment form – the first three digits of your surname and an eight-digit number), you will then be asked for your name.

You will be asked to choose a password which the support staff will enter.  This will be your password for the duration of your programme.

Alternatively you can email with your phone number and they will ring you back.  You must speak to our support team to authorise the initial password.

Please use your college username and password.

If you have any problems accessing our resources please contact us.
