Student Login Details

A student login is required to visit CQUniversity systems like the MyCQU Student Portal and Moodle. Student login details are important as you will need to log into these systems to complete tasks like enrolling or submitting an assessment, as well as access information like your grades or fee notices.


The username can be either your student email address or your Student ID. A student email looks like or

If you are using your Student ID and this begins with a ‘c’ or ‘q’, the last digit is dropped, e.g. c9876543 or q9876543. Your Student ID may also consist of only numbers, e.g. 12047070, or start with an s, e.g. s1234567.


The temporary password is in the format of a lower case 's' followed by your date of birth (DDMMYY) followed by the # symbol, e.g. s301297#. Once logged in, please update your temporary password and provide an additional email address or mobile phone number that we can use to verify your identity and ensure password security.
