I managed to find my PRID by typing in numbers written on random documents the university had sent me, so am now back online and able to read the complaints of my peers for having to jump through this hoop.

It turns out that the university's passwords are not compromised. The forced password-change was in order to make us use multi-factor authorisation to gain access to our virtual lab. Apparently, a student had decided that a high-powered cloud-based computing system was not only a valuable resource, but a valuable resource access to which could be sold. Hence, the decision was made to use MFA and make us all change our passwords.

Now I have to install Microsoft's MFA solution on my phone. That is so not going to happen.
