How do I access my CPUT student email?

The university provides email through its myCPUT service. The address is vital for students as it allows for communication with the administration through updates, alerts, and access to the institution’s other online functions such as Blackboard (the online learning platform).

For students registered after 2012, an automatic address is created. The format is [student number]@mycput.ac.za for every student. For those registered before 2012, they used the email they submitted during registration.

To access your myCPUT student email account, follow these steps:

  1. Open outlook.com/mycput.ac.za
  2. Enter your username which is your email address
  3. Enter your password

If you forget your password, there are ways to reset it. You will require the following:

  • Your student card
  • A valid ID or passport number
  • A mobile phone to receive the new code

You should strive to change your password regularly. If you suspect your current one has been compromised, change it as soon as possible.

How do I find my CPUT SOS PIN?

To access the CPUT student portal, you will need a PIN (Personal Identification Number) that is unique to you. There are two separate categories for answering this question, depending on whether you are a returning student or a new one.

Finding the PIN for returning students

If you are a returning student, you already have a PIN that you were issued at admission when you started. This section is helpful when you have either forgotten the number or misplaced it. For this, you will need to employ the use of the Forgot PIN function.

Here are the steps to recovering your lost PIN:

  1. Visit the Portal login page
  2. Select the appropriate option that applies to you between Student, Personnel, Other, and Alumni
  3. Enter your student number
  4. Click on the button marked Forgot PIN?

The PIN will be sent to your myCPUT email. This is the only location where the number will be sent for security purposes.

Finding the PIN for new admissions

If you are a newly admitted student to the university, you will need to request a PIN for the first time in order to access the Students Online Services. For this, you will need to employ the use of the Request a PIN function.

Here are the steps to guide you:

  1. Visit the Portal login page
  2. Select Student from the list of options
  3. Type your student number in the field that requires it
  4. Click the button marked Request a PIN

Since you are a newcomer and do not have a student email for the number to be forwarded to, you will need to go back to the previous page where it will be displayed.

You may encounter some error messages. Here is what they mean and how to resolve them:

  • ORA-01403: no data found (user number …) – you entered the wrong student number. Check to ensure you typed it correctly.
  • Not Enough Information – go back and make sure that the web application is correct and the correct user number is filled in.
  • A Value Error Occurred – make sure you are not using character values in the user number and PIN fields.
  • Illegal Login – you are using an incorrect PIN, or you do not have one yet.
