UVID Information

Loyola’s Universal ID (UVID) is the primary means of authentication and identification throughout the University. Although the UVID is used to logon to most applications and resources at Loyola, its use can vary for Health Sciences users. Specific details regarding the UVID at Loyola are listed below.

University Faculty, Staff, and Students

For University faculty, staff, and students, the UVID provides access to most of Loyola’s resources. This includes, but not limited to, LOCUS, Sakai, Microsoft Outlook email, Lawson, Kronos, campus wireless access and campus networked computers.

UVID provisioning is automated for all faculty, staff, and students at Loyola.

University Faculty, Staff, and Students in Health Sciences (HSD)

On May 15, 2012, LUC ITS will create all new IDs and e-mail for the Health Sciences Division. A team comprising of LUC, HSD and LUMC Information Technology has collaborated on designing and testing this shift to LUC e-mail. In addition, the team has met with key functional users at LUC and HSD to identify and resolve any potential indirect impact to system security and access.

Note: This will not affect existing IDs and e-mail for HSD faculty, students and staff. This change will not affect HSD clinical faculty.

For HSD faculty, staff, and students, the UVID provides access to myLumen, Loyola Wired, Lawson, Kronos and University resources (such as LOCUS, Blackboard and campus wireless access). For HSD Faculty, Staff and Students with an luc.edu e-mail address, the UVID also provides access to GroupWise e-mail. UVID provisioning is automated for HSD. However, access to additional resources such as EPIC and workstations needs to be requested through LUHS.

School of Nursing Faculty, Staff, and Students

For the School of Nursing faculty, staff, and students, the UVID functions identically to the University. This includes access to, LOCUS, Sakai, Microsoft Outlook email, Lawson, Kronos, campus wireless access and campus networked computers. UVID provisioning is automated for all faculty, staff, and students in the School of Nursing.
