How do I get a password for Raven?

Current members of the University and affiliated institutions are provided with a Raven password when they arrive. Non-members who perform University can ask members to apply for a Raven password on their behalf in exceptional circumstances.

Raven is the University's central user authentication system for web-based resources. Some web resources are only available to people with a Raven account. Raven accounts are provided to staff and students of the University when they arrive.

How to apply for a Raven password

If you're not a member of the University, but perform University business for which you need a Raven password (for example, supervising students), you'll need to ask a member of the University to complete an online Raven application form on your behalf. They'll need to provide:

  • your name
  • a contact email address
  • a mobile phone number
  • confirmation that you're performing University business for which you need a Raven password.

If the request is accepted, a member of our User Admin team will then contact you to arrange a video call, during which you'll be asked to confirm your identity by displaying a Government-issued form of identification (for example, a passport or driving licence). You will then be provided with your Raven login details.
