HYMS Password Policy

On 3 January 2018, Hull York Medical School implemented a new Password Policy to help increase security, protect your personal data and to bring HYMS in line with our parent universities. This new policy requires all HYMS users to change their password at least once every year

How do I change my password

You can change your password at any time both on and off campus by using the HYMS Password Management service – https://passwordreset.hyms.ac.uk

Once you have enrolled in the system (by selecting and answering a number of personal security questions) you can change your password. Should you ever forget your account credentials you can reset your account using this tool by answering the personal security questions that were set when you enrolled.

Password must be:

  • 10 characters minimum (however, a longer passphrase is recommended)
  • At least one non-letter (number or symbol) and contain upper and lower case letters
  • You will not be able to reuse your previous 6 passwords
