Uniqnames & Passwords

ITS manages uniqnames and passwords you use to access U-M resources.

  • Getting a Uniqname
    ​There are different processes for getting a uniqname based on a person's relationship to the university.
  • Change Your Password and other password issues
    The UMICH password associated with your uniqname is used for many services throughout the university.
  • MCommunity
    The University of Michigan enterprise directory and identity management system containing profiles for people and groups. Central U-M offices—as well as departments, schools, colleges, and campuses—use it to grant and remove access to their online resources.
    • MCommunity Directory
      A public directory of people and groups at the University of Michigan.
    • MCommunity Sponsor System
      Allows authorized U-M staff members to get uniqnames and create online identities for people who are affiliated with the university but who do not receive uniqnames and online identities through other means.
  • Shibboleth
    Shibboleth allows people to log in to web resources at InCommon-member institutions using the ID and password they use at their own institution.
  • Two-Factor Authentication
    Two-factor authentication adds a second layer of security, keeping your account secure even if your password is compromised.
  • Identity & Access Management (IAM)
    IAM provides you with a unique online identity to use in accessing U-M computing resources.
