How do I determine my UniqueID and MUnet password?

Issue/Question

  • How do I determine my UniqueID and MUnet password?
  • Where can I find my UniqueID and MUnet password?

Environment

  • Authentication

Rationale

  • All faculty, staff, and students are assigned a Miami UniqueID and an MUnet password, the credentials used to sign in to the majority of Miami systems, including email, myMiami, and BannerWeb

Resolution 

Determine your UniqueID

Using the UniqueID formula 

  • Your Miami UniqueID is generated using data from Human Resources or Registrar files. It generally consists of the first six characters of your last name, your first initial, and your middle initial.
    • example: The UniqueID for John Q. Public would be PublicJQ
  • In some cases, your UniqueID will not follow the formula, if the same formula was already used to create a UniqueID for someone with a similar name. In that case, use one of the following methods to determine your UniqueID

Using the UniqueID Lookup tool

  1. Follow this link to the Miami UniqueID Lookup tool
  2. Follow the instructions on the page to search for your UniqueID

Locating your entry in the directory

  • If you have requested to be hidden in the directory, this option will not work for you
  • Incoming students are not listed in the directory until August 1
  1. Follow this link to the Miami directory
  2. In the search box, select People from the Search drop-down menu
  3. In the for field, enter your name as given to the Registrar, Academic Personnel Services, or Department of Human Resources
  4. Select your name from the directory results 
  5. Look for the UniqueID line in your entry

 

Determine your MUnet password

  • Your default MUnet password is derived from your birth date and Social Security or Banner+ number, as follows:
    • Your two-digit birth month and your two-digit birth day, followed by the last four digits of your Social Security number 
      • example: A birth date of March 1 and a Social Security number ending in 6789 results in a default MUnet password of 03016789
    • Your two-digit birth month and your two-digit birth day, followed by the last four digits of your Banner+ number 
  • If your password is at the default value, you will be required to change it after logging in to a Miami web-based service
  • If you have forgotten your password, follow this link to validate your user information and reset your password
