Access and sign off

Access ESS

Log in to ESS using your normal RMIT ID and password.

If you haven’t previously logged into the network, you will need to use your employee number and initial password, and you’ll then be prompted to reset it. Your initial login details are your employee number preceded by an ‘e’ (e.g. e12345) and initial password will be the letter ‘p’ followed by your date of birth backwards in this format (pYYYYMMDD!). For example, if your date of birth is 7 April 1983, your password is p19830407!.

Forgotten your password? You can reset it via the Password assistance page. If you are having problems, please contact the Service and Support Centre.
