Use your proposal system login

If you already have a proposal system login you can now use this to sign in.

STFC Staff: Please note that you must use your stfc.ac.uk email address (the rl.ac.uk email addresses no longer work). Your password is unchanged.

Use your STFC Computer Account (aka Federal ID)

If you have been sent an STFC Computer Account you can still use this to login.

Simply enter your username (e.g. abc12345) in the email address box as shown below (the CLRC prefix is not needed) and enter the password sent to you.

Please note that the Forgot Password link only works with the new email address style of login. You cannot use these to be reminded of your STFC Computer Account (aka Federal ID) password.

USERS: We recommend you get set up with our new login system so you can manage your account and password yourself.

Get set up with our new login system

Our new login system enables you to manage your own credentials so you do not need an STFC Computer Account and the associated cryptic and difficult to manage password.

If you have been sent an STFC Computer Account recently you can still register to login using the new email address-based system instead so you can manage your own account and password easily. To do this, click on the 'claim your new account here' link at the top of the page and follow the instructions on screen.

Once you have registered you can login using your email address and the new password that you have set yourself.

Click the 'Forgot Password?' link.

Enter the email address you want to reset the password for and click 'Send a Password Reset'. You have the ability to enter multiple email addresses, seperated by a comma, if you are also unsure of which address you used at registration.

An email will be sent out containing instructions on how to reset your password for that account. Once you have reset your password you should then be able to login using your email address and new password.

Not sure which email address you have registered with the user office?

Contact the relevant user office through the contact details in the "Get Support" section at the bottom-right of this page. Please provide your given and family names in any correspondance and they will check their records to see if you have an account with them.
