  1.        Type portal.office.com in the URL
  2.        Input the Username/UPN
    username is matricnumber@live.unilag.edu.ng
    e.g 100456@live.unilag.edu.ng
  3.       Input the password given and click sign in password is Unilag with last 5digits of students’ matric number e.g Unilag00456
  4.       Update your password.

Please note that this can also be setup on Mobile Phones e.g Android phones after first sign-in on web browser via portal.office.com

Current Password – The temporary password given to you

New Password – Choose password of your choice which must consist of all or any two in the bracket (character, uppercase, lowercase and numbers)
