If the account opens after entering the address, then you are probably already signed into another online service that uses your student account for authentication.  Sign out of the account and try again, OR use a completely different browser. In addition, you may need to clear your browser's cache. This can be done in most browsers by navigating to "settings" > "privacy and security" >"clear browsing data/history".
