Change password

You have separate passwords to your JU account and eduroam account. You must change your JU password once a year and your eduroam password every four years.

A strong password contains at least 8 characters, and can consist of the following characters:

  • A-Z
  • a-z
  • 0-9
  • Special characters: ! @ # $ % & ( * ) + - [ \ ] ^ _ ` { / } ~ ' ", .

Your password must contain at least one upper-case letter, one lower-case letter, one number and may advantageously contain special characters.
NOTE! The password to eduroam must be exactly 7 characters instead of 8 characters.

Change your passwords (user account and eduroam account) on Self service user accountexternal link, opens in new window.

NOTE! If your computer is installed with program package 2015, the password must be changed through the Self Service page. If you use a Jönköping University laptop with programpackage 2013 or earlier we recommend that you change the password of your user account via Novell (Ctrl + Alt + Delete). Make sure that you have logged on to Novell from the start.
