YU Card

Computing for Students at York

Passport York account

On admission to the University you are automatically assigned a Passport York account, with your student number as username and date of birth as password. On your first login you change these to something you prefer. Your Passport York username and password are necessary to access numerous online services at York such as enrolment, looking up your student financial account, your grades and more. Very importantly, it gives you access to the application called Manage My Services, which in turn lets you perform a wide range of tasks, including activating additional accounts and changing passwords.

Your computing accounts expire if you are NOT enrolled in courses for the full academic year (September through April) or if you drop all of your courses during the academic year, or graduate.
