WebLogin confirms who you are (i.e. authenticates you) so that the University can give you access to a range of web services and applications.

Where possible WebLogin authenticates you automatically so that, having logged in to a Windows PC on the Lancaster domain, you will not be prompted to sign in again on most web applications.


 How do I log into WebLogin?

When you access a University web service or application which requires you to log in via WebLogin, you may be presented with the login screen. Whether you see this or not depends on whether automatic login is available on the device you are using.

If automatic login is not available on your device, after you first sign in to a web service or application you can access others without receiving further prompts for your password.

To log in:

  1. In the Username box, type your University username (e.g. bloggsj)

  2. In the Password box, type your University password.

  3. Click Login.

If you get authenticated successfully, you will be passed through to the web service or application that you wanted to access.  Your password will always be sent securely. 


Automatic login is not enabled for certain applications (e.g. LUSI online) - you will always be prompted for your username and password when accessing these services.

It is also possible to log in to WebLogin without trying to access a University service or application, at: https://weblogin.lancs.ac.uk/login/




 Disable automatic login on WebLogin

Automatic login is now enabled by default on most Lancaster University WebLogin applications. This means that if you are already logged in to a Windows PC on the lancaster domain, you will automatically be able to access Lancaster web applications without logging in again.

If you want to disable this feature so that you still must log in separately to web applications, follow the instructions below.


  1. Navigate to https://weblogin.lancs.ac.uk/preferences/.

  2. Untick the Log me in automatically box.

    Weblogin preferences screen

  3. Click Save.




 To log out of WebLogin where the service/application has a logout button

To log out of a web service or application which uses WebLogin, you can:

  1. Click the logout button in the service or application that you are using. This should take you to the WebLogin Log Out screen.

    Logging out in this way will also log you out of any other WebLogin authenticated services or applications that you had open in your browser.




 To log out of WebLogin where the service/application does not have a logout button

If the WebLogin authenticated web service or application you are using does not have a logout button (or if there is a logout button but it doesn't work), the alternative ways to log out are:

Close down your web browser

  • Click the Close button at the top right of your browser.


Close button


Closing your browser will also log you out of any other WebLogin authenticated services or applications which you had open in your browser.

Go direct to the WebLogin logout screen

  1. Navigate to: https://weblogin.lancs.ac.uk/logout/

  2. Click Log Out - the Logged Out screen appears, confirming that you are logged out.

Logging out in this way will also log you out of any other WebLogin authenticated services or applications that you had open in your browser.
