The University's online Finance Self Service portal is used for employees, students and VaHAs to manage their finance transactions.

How to log on to Finance Self Service

Access to the portal utilises ANU’s single sign-on (SSO) capability. This is the same logon credentials you use for other ANU applications such as accessing your ANU emails, HORUS, ISIS, Wattle etc.

Your logon credentials for Finance Self Service are:

  • User Name: your ANU ID (eg. U7654321)

What if I do not have a University ID or current relationship with the ANU?

The Finance Self Service portal is only available for individuals with a University ID and a current employment, student or VaHA relationship with the University.

For all other non-VaHA academics and other visitors with a financial transaction enquiry, please consult your local finance area for further assistance.
