What is my UniqueID?

Every student, faculty and staff member has been issued a UniqueID. It consists of the first six letters of the last name, followed by the first and middle initial; some UniqueIDs end in a number, rather than a middle initial, because common last names and initials mean that some UniqueIDs are already in use. The UniqueID is not case sensitive.

For example, the UniqueID for John Q. Public would be "publicjq".

If you do not know your UniqueID, use the UniqueID self-service tool to discover it.

What password do I use to log in?

The password used by most Miami web services is the MUnet password; this is the password that is used to sign in to myMiami, BannerWeb, or Niihka (all of these services use the same password).

By default, your password is the month and day of your birth and the last four digits of your social security number in the format mmddnnnn. Please include the leading zero for single digit months and days. For example, a birth date of March 1 with Social Security number 123-45-6789 would have a default password of "03016789". If your password is at the default value, you will be prompted to change it as soon as you log in.

If you have changed your password to another value, use that value in place of the default password.

If you have forgotten your password and have a secret question and answer on file, the MUnet Password Utilities will allow you to change your password to a new value.

Incoming first-year students with accounts, reset your password using a non-Miami email address.

Family Members with accounts, reset your password using a non-Miami email address.
