  • At the top of the page, usually on the right you'll see a link with the text You are not logged in (log in).
  • Click the link and add your user name and password
  • Your user name and password are the same as you would use to access your email.  If you don't know this information, contact IT services.
  • Your email address is not your user name, though it may be part of your user name: jbond007@gold.ac.uk, you just need the part to the left of the @ sign.
  • Enter your username and then your password and click the log in button.

Password or username problem?

  • If you cannot log in, try again - make sure CAPS LOCK is off. Your password is case sensitive.
  • If it doesn't work, contact IT Services as they look after usernames and passwords at Goldsmiths. They have a helpdesk on the first floor of the library or see the IT web pages


Logged in but get stuck on the profile page?

  • Are you stuck on a page showing your profile with a blank email address? Please contact the IT Services helpdesk about this issue - explain your email address is empty in learn.gold.  They can fix this for you.
