Username & Password


The username is generated in one of the following two ways:

  • "Official Given Name" + "Surname"
  • "Preferred Firstname" + "Surname if you have provided a "Preferred Firstname" (for staff only)

For example, if your surname is "Chan" and your given name is "Tai Man", your Lingnan username would be "taimanchan". For staff, if you provide a "Preferred Firstname", say "Peter", your Lingnan username would be "peterchan" instead.

In case of the username having been occupied, a sequence number will be appended to the username. For example, "taimanchan2" or "peterchan3" would be assigned in our previous examples. Please also be reminded that there should not be any vulgar words or punctuation characters in the username.
