The Oxford username
The Oxford username is your gateway to services at Oxford. Most of the central services are authenticated via the Oxford username and many departments and colleges now use it to authenticate their own services too. You might also hear it called your 'Single Sign On' (SSO) or 'webauth' account as well as simply using the name of a service eg your 'Nexus account' - it is all the same. Your Oxford username allows you to access the central mail store (known as Nexus), access your own web space, use WebLearn, use the Oxford email relays when not in Oxford via a configured mail client, and get a central linux account. It will also give you access to library resources, OXAM past exam papers, the OSS student records system, the OxCORT undergrad tutorial system, GSS, the Graduate Supervison System, and many other services.
IT Services' Online Advent Calendar
