Getting Started

You will need to create a WIN profile through our WIN Registration System. You can do this by logging in using your University supplied Single-Sign-On (SSO). Then click on "Update Profile" to complete any missing details, select your PI’s name from the drop-down list.  

You can control your mailing list subscriptions and request a WIN computing account (if needed for data analysis) through your WIN registration page.  

Please note you will need a grant code from your PI in order to request a computing account so please talk to them first if you think you might need a WIN computing account.

You can then request building access following the FAQ instructions.

Getting Started

You will first need to create a WIN profile via register.fmrib.ox.ac.uk. If you do not yet have an SSO or university email address, you can do this step after you complete your induction and magnet safety training, but you will not be able to gain building access until you have created a WIN profile. When you log-in, your profile will be automatically created, but please add in your status and your WIN supervisor information. From here, you can check your training records, manage your access to WIN mailing lists, and request a WIN computing account.

Please arrange a building induction by emailing admin@win.ox.ac.uk. Inductions are run every Wednesday 9:30-10:10 (for both FMRIB and annexe). These inductions start from FMRIB reception. At your induction, you will receive a building access request form. Please complete this and return to FMRIB reception or email to admin@win.ox.ac.uk

You will also need to attend magnet safety training. The WIN training takes place on the second Wednesday of the month at 10:30 in the WIN@FMRIB Annexe, Cowey Rooms, or online via Teams. Alternatively, you can request to attend the magnet safety training at neighbouring OCMR, which happens on the last Thursday of each month between 10:00-10:30 via Teams. For more information on attending OCMR magnet safety training, please email rebecca.mills@cardiov.ox.ac.uk.

If you are a new member of staff, you may also need to attend your department's induction. Please talk to your PI or ask admin@win.ox.ac.uk if you are unsure.

Once you return your building access request form to us, and once you have completed the magnet safety training, FMRIB building access will be given in a few working days. You will receive an email once your access has been given. For WIN@FMRIB Annexe access this can be given immediately following your induction.
