Computers and the internet

Logging onto computers at college

Your username is your student id number. You can find this on your student swipe card.

Your email address is your student id number followed by @student.south-thames.ac.uk (eg This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). We send important information - such as college closures - to this address.

Your password is PassDDMMYYYY. Enter your date of birth instead of the letters DDMMYYYY.

Changing your password

You will need to change your password the first time you log in to a college computer. Your new password must have a minimum of six characters. If you want to reset your password again after this, you can press CTRL+ALT+DEL while logged onto a PC or use one of the password reset machines. These are on the walls in the libraries and next to IT Services at Merton and Wandsworth. To use the machine, swipe your id card and it will print a receipt with your new password.

Printing

We give you print credits at the start of your course and monthly after that. If you need to top up your balance, you can buy more at one of the college libraries. Any unused print credits at the end of your course are non-refundable.

You'll need your id card to use the printers in the libraries. During your induction you'll be shown how to register your id card the first time you use the printer. 

Wifi

There is wifi on each campus. Use the GUEST network and the password souththames. Once you’re connected, you'll have to enter your student id number and password to get onto the internet.

Before using the guest wireless for the first time, please follow the instructions on the sign-in page to install a certificate on your device. This allows College to filter web traffic properly.

Guidelines

If you're using a college computer for personal reasons, you'll need to log off if another student wants to use it for studying.

Do not use the computers to visit sites containing offensive or inappropriate content. Details of the websites you visit on college computers are recorded.

You have 100MB of storage on the college servers for your work. You will need to clear this at the end of the year. Don't store large files such as music and films as this will take up your storage space.

For more information check the IT services area on the VLE.

Cashless payment

For quick and easy payment in our cafés and canteens, swipe and go with your ID card.

Top up online

WisePay

Top up your ID card on the WisePay website using your WisePay username and password (all new students are emailed this automatically). You can check your balance on WisePay too.

Top up on campus

Use the top up machines outside the big canteen at Wandsworth, and next to reception and the refectory at Merton. Just touch your ID card on the sensor and insert your money. If you need to reset the machine after someone has used it, press the round, silver button. You can also check your balance at the machines.

Lost ID cards

If you lose your ID card your balance will be transferred automatically to your new card. Student Services can help you if you need a replacement ID card.

Refunds

Money left on your card at the end of the academic year, or at the end of your course, will not be returned. Make sure you spend your balance so you don’t lose out!

Free College Meals

If you qualify for free college meals your card is topped up automatically every day. You must spend it on the same day as the balance will not be carried over.
