Students each receive a username and password when they are enrolled in a Queensland state school. This allows access to a range of online services and the College network.
- For existing students, passwords will generally be reset prior to the commencement of the new school year. Information will be communicated to parents/carers prior to the commencement of the new school year.
- New students enrolling through the year will be able to get their username and passwords from their class teachers, or at the Middle Senior Library for Year 6-12 students. Note that it can take a minimum of 2 days from a student's official start date for a network account to be generated, and longer in peak times.
Usernames can also be obtained from class teachers.
Passwords can be reset by any class teacher who has a Windows laptop.
Middle and Senior school students can get their usernames and have their passwords reset at the Middle Senior Library by asking any staff member.
Once students know their username and password, they can reset their password at https://owa.eq.edu.au.
