Welcome to Lesley University! We want to make sure you get all your technology needs squared away so you can focus on your schoolwork and enjoy your time here! Please use the information below to get yourself set up and acquainted with technology at Lesley.
Before You Get to Campus
1) Change your password at mp.lesley.edu
You should have received your username and a temporary password via the snail mail. Head over to mp.lesley.edu, our 24/7 password management site, to change your password. If you lost or did not receive this paperwork, don't worry. Just give us a call or email us and we'll be happy to help you get set up.
2) Create a password profile at mp.lesley.edu
While you're at mp.lesley.edu changing your password, create a password profile so that you can manage your password on your own time in the future (even when our office is closed). For security purposes, you will be required to change your password every 6 months, so this will definitely come in handy.
3) Log in to your Lesley email at lesley.edu/email
Your Lesley email is your official means of communication while attending school here. Your professors, staff, organizations, and other students will use it to get in touch with you. You can access it on the web, or easily add it to your smartphone or other mobile device by installing the Outlook app. You can also add the full Microsoft Office 365 suite - including the Outlook desktop application - while you are a student at Lesley. Here are the directions on how to do so.
To log in to your Lesley email account on the web, go to lesley.edu/email and enter your Lesley email address and password.
4) Familiarize yourself with LOIS at lesley.edu/lois
LOIS is an acronym for Lesley Online Information Services. You'll access this account to review admission and financial aid application statuses, your class schedule, grades, and unofficial transcripts. You'll also use it to request official transcripts, register for classes, and apply for graduation.
5) Familiarize yourself with MyLesley at lesley.edu/mylesley
myLesley, also referred to as BlackBoard, is a learning management system. You'll use it to do things like view class assignments and syllabi, have online class discussions, submit papers, and access library databases.
When You Get to Campus
1) Connect to the wireless network.
At Lesley we have two wireless networks that you can join: lesley_open and lesley_secured. They'll both require you to enter your Lesley username and password to access the internet, but the lesley_secured network provides additional security by requiring you to enter a one-time password (just like you would at home to access your router), which can be found on our intranet page.
2) Connect to the wired network in your dorm.
In your dorm room, for the fastest speeds possible, plug your computer into the wired network. Pick up an Ethernet cable from a local office supply store, and connect it from your computer to the Red port in your room.
3) Find the computer labs.
We have public computer labs with printers and scanners on every campus, and some are open 24/7 so that you can get your work done at any time of the day.
You can also print to the lab printers from your own computer using a feature called WebPrint.
