Self Service Password Reset
Information Technology is implementing the Self Service Password Reset (SSPR) capability for all students, faculty, and staff at Johnson & Wales University. This new system increases the university’s level of password security and will eliminate the need for the 90-day password reset once all JWU employees and students have registered with SSPR. All JWU students and employees are required to register with SSPR by March 18, 2019: JWU SSPR Registration Portal ( sspr.jwu.edu )

Only individuals registered with SSPR will have access to the self-service capability. Those who do not register will have to call the IT Service Desk for password assistance. The current method of resetting passwords will be retired by the end of March 2019, so it is very important that all JWU users complete their registration with SSPR.

If you have any difficulty with registering, please contact the IT Service Desk for assistance at 1-866-598-4357. Hours are Monday to Friday, 8 a.m.-7:30 p.m. ET; closed Saturday and Sunday.

Fire Alarm Testing
During the week of February 25 through March 1, Facilities Management will be updating the fire alarm panels for the following locations starting at 8am on February 25:

  • Wales Hall

  • Imperial Hall

  • The Friedman Center

At the end of each day, the fire alarm system will be tested and the horns will sound sporadically for 15 minutes. The final test with the state fire marshal will be determined.

Call Andre Vafiadis in Facilities Management at 401-741-3287 with any questions.
