Accounts and Access
UofM accounts are issued to all university faculty, staff, and students.
UofM accounts provide faculty, staff, and students access to a variety of computing resources and online services. Account owners are issued a Universal User ID (UUID) and password necessary to access university resources.
In order to begin utilizing University resources and online services, you will need to initialize your account using an account code generated through iAM Identity Management. You will then begin the verification process by entering the 20 digit account code and birth date.
Central directory services provide standards based databases of user data most commonly used by IT services to authenticate and authorize user account access to online service and resources. We centrally support both LDAP and Microsoft Active Directory.
Use this request to change the way your name is displayed when you send out an email. The display/preferred account name change gives you options on how your name displays.
The iAM web service provides users the ability to self-service several account functions.
These functions include password reset, email routing, and preferred email address
Note: If you have recently changed your password, forget and re-add all UofM wireless networks on all your devices. For more help connecting to on-campus wireless networks, visit our wireless page.
Duo Account Security or two-factor authentication adds a second layer of security to your online accounts. Verifying your identity using a second factor prevents anyone but you from logging in, even if they know your password.
Your password, in association with your Universal User ID (UUID), gives you access
to all of the University's computing resources and online services. This account
password should be unique from every other password you use.
Note: If you have recently changed your password, forget and re-add all UofM wireless networks on your all devices. For more help connecting to on-campus wireless networks, visit our wireless page.
Single Sign On or Shibboleth Identity Provider is centrally maintained to provide both SAML and CAS compliant authentication services that limit reuse and exposure to user credentials by multiple services.
Sponsored Accounts provide individuals who are not formally affiliated with the university access to computing resources to support instructional, research or administrative activities. These accounts have a limited duration (maximum 1 year), but can be renewed as needed.
Suspicious activity may suggest that an account has been hacked. It is the unauthorized use of an account by someone other than the account owner. Remember, ITS will never ask for your password via email or phone.
The Universal User ID (UUID) is the username shared among various university services. Your UUID forms your email address as follows: UUID@memphis.edu. For students, the UUID is created upon admission to the University. For new staff and faculty, the UUID is created upon hire.
