Brightspace: Student Support

Logging into Brightspace

Accessing Brightspace is very simple. You can go directly to or find the link in MySuffolk.

Once you're at the login page, your username and password will be the same ones that you use to access your email or a networked computer on campus. When you're new to the University, this will typically be your S-number and your date of birth (ddMonyy). For example:

  • Username: S1234567
  • Password: 01Jan85

Of course, it's always a good idea to change your password to a unique one that's impossible for others to guess.

The login screen will look like this:
