Uniqnames & Passwords

ITS manages uniqnames and the UMICH (Level-1) password you use to access many U-M resources.

  • Uniqnames & Accounts
    Your uniqname is your U-M login ID. There are different processes for getting a uniqname based on your relationship to the university.
  • Find People's Uniqnames
    You can look up people in the MCommunity Directory to find their uniqnames.
  • Your UMICH (Level-1) Password
    The UMICH (Level-1) password associated with your uniqname is used when logging in to many services throughout the university. Members of the Michigan Medicine community use their Michigan Medicine (Level-2) password with their uniqname for logging in to Michigan Medicine services.
  • Two-Factor Authentication (Duo)
    Two-factor authentication adds a second layer of security when you log in, keeping your account secure even if your password is stolen or compromised.
  • 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.
