Accessing employee self-service

Please download any payslips and P60s you may need from our old Oracle payroll system by the end of July 2022.

Payslips from April 2022 onwards can be found on People and Money.

Login Details

Your username will be your universal username (UUN) that you use to login to other services such as email.

When logging in for the first time, your password will not be recognised as the Oracle login page is not single sign on. For example, if you attempt to login with your staff UUN (e.g. jbloggs1) and then use the same password you use to log into myED or EASE, this will result in an error.

To remedy this, please click on Forgotten Password and enter your UUN in the User Name box and click on Forgot password button. This will send an email to your staff email account, which will include a link to allow you to change your password.

Please note: Student UUN’s (e.g. s12345) and the format "" and the format "Firstname.Lastname" and the format "ed\UUN" are not valid usernames and will produce an error.

If you are a staff member and do not have a staff email account, please phone 0131 650 8126 for assistance with gaining your login details.

If you are a staff member and you do have a staff email account and you are unsure what your login details are, please use the Forgotten Password feature.

Logging In

Staff can access employee self-service by clicking on the button below. This will open a new window, landing on the Oracle employee self-service (ESS) login page.
