As a student or employee, you need an Umu-id to be able to log into most of the university’s systems and services, such as Canvas, Intranet and administrative systems.
- As a student, you will receive your Umu-id automatically when you are admitted to one of our courses.

Your Umu-id consists of a username and a password. The username consists of 8 characters in a combination of letters and numbers. The letters are based on your first and last name while the numbers are a serial number.
Password to your UmU-id is something you set yourself. A password must be between 8-20 characters long and must contain 3 of the following 4 parameters: Capital letters, small letters, numbers, special characters (like * # ! & )
