Nexus365: Logging in via the Web

All members of the University are automatically given an Oxford Username once a University card has been issued. This Oxford Username is also known as the Single Sign-On (or SSO). When you start at the University your SSO is on your registration email, along with details of where to find your new Oxford email address.  Office 365 (Nexus365) is designed to work with the latest browsers.  Further information about your Oxford Username can be found here: Oxford Username
