The Hydra repository is a digital archive for the University of Hull. It has been developed to hold, manage, preserve and provide access to the growing body of digital material generated through the research, teaching and administrative activities of the University.

Hydra and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Hydra will soon require Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in order to login, which most people will be familiar with from activities such as mobile banking or paying for purchases online. It uses a second piece of evidence (such as a code sent to your mobile phone, or an authentication app) to quickly confirm your identity and protect your data. Please ensure you have registered an MFA method so that you are able to access the service. For further information on registering and setting up multi-factor authentication, please visit www.hull.ac.uk/mfa
