👉 Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Use Microsoft Authenticator App for Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). A quicker and easier way to login across multiple devices. This is independent to your SIM and so if you change devices, you will still be able to authenticate. more details….


 🎯 Staff usernames:
All staff (excluding colleagues at UoRM) should sign in as <username>@reading.ac.uk – for example, if your username is ab123456 you will enter ab123456@reading.ac.uk when signing in.
If you have forgotten your Password or experience any issues in logging in please raise a ticket with DTS through the Self Service Portal, or by emailing dts@reading.ac.uk.

🎯 How to avoid two-step verification every time you login to Blackboard?
Please login to UoR email or Office.com in your web browser. Please choose “Yes” when asked for “Stay signed-in?”. Please note, this option is not recommended if you are using a shared or public computer. Once logged in, you can open https://www.bb.reading.ac.uk/ and click on “Sign in with Microsoft”.

To avoid entering verification code every time you login please do following:
1. Do not logout of your email or office.com
2. When logout of Blackboard, choose “Continue SSO”
