The new service will be called Nexus365.

We strongly recommend Eduroam to all our Staff, Fellows and Students – once configured you can connect to “free” wireless all over Oxford as well as other Eduroam hotspots around the UK and the rest of the world.
We have had a few queries about obtaining an Enrolment Certificate in order for overseas students to open a bank account in the UK.
There are two steps to enrolment:
Once both you and the College have checked all the correct boxes and satisfied the enrolment process then you will see the menu heading “My Student Record” on the Student Self Service web page.
Click “My Student Record” and you will see a list of certificates and documents which you can print.
If you do NOT have the “My Student Record” menu heading then it means that either you OR the College hasn’t completed all the steps of the enrolment process.
If you can answer YES to all the above, then you should contact the College Office again and ask them to tick the box in the Student Records System. 🙂
I mentioned in my blog post back on 12 January 2017 that Phishing was getting serious – Phishing getting serious now in Oxford
However, the game has been raised this morning with a Spear Phishing attack against MCR Presidents and Treasurers. You have been warned!
What is a Spear Phishing attack?
This is where the attackers / scammers / bad-guys have done some homework and have pulled information about people from the College website and LinkedIn and then crafted targeted emails and then spoofed the sender. I have read about this for many years but this is it happening today. A sad day indeed.
Microsoft Office365 is a 12 month renewable subscription so you just need to go back to http://ox.ac.onthehub.com and “buy” a new free subscription.
Once you subscription is renewed you will receive an email with a temporary password – however, we have found that this temporary password doesn’t always work. So what do you do?
You can call Kivuto direct on a free phone number or you can try this (long-winded) workaround.
If your subscription is still valid and Office still refuses to work … contact Kivuto Support and explain what happened. Kivuto will send you with a new Temporary password which will allow you to login to Microsoft and create a new password.
Please note that this service is delivered by Kivuto on behalf of IT Services – all support queries need to go to firstname.lastname@example.org or 0800 098 8436 (11am to 11pm UK time).
Sounds like your subscription may have expired.
Login to the “OnTheHub.com” website and check when your annual subscription for Office365 expires.
If your subscription has expired … renew it for free! 🙂
However, we have found that the temporary password sent to you for renewing your subscription doesn’t always work.
So what do you do?
