However, not every platform uses SSO. For these exceptions, you will need a different password. You will find these via the link below.

Be sure you are logged in using your usual Lowther login to view this document. This document is updated as new platforms are added or if access information is updated - so if a login doesn't work for you, please check back to see that it hasn't changed. Access is for current Lowther Hall students and staff only. Please do not share this with people outside the Lowther Hall community.
