Universal ID and Password
Your Universal ID and Password provides access to LOCUS, Sakai, networked LUC computers, and LUC email. Students having trouble with their ID/Password should contact the Helpdesk at 773.508.7190 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Password Support (Personal Account Manager/PAM)
PAM is Loyola's Personal Account Manager website. It enables you to reset a forgotten password any time of day, provided you have set up your PAM questions.
- Using PAM to reset the temporary password the ITS Support Center provided or resetting your password when you know your old password
You will need to know the temporary password that the ITS Help Desk gave you (or your current password if you are resetting your password). After you reset your password, we recommend that you set up your questions in PAM, so that if you forget your password again, you will be able to reset it without calling the ITS Help Desk.
- Setting up questions in PAM—first-time user
Set your personal identifiers so you can reset your password in the future.
- Resetting your password with PAM after you set up your PAM questions
You will be asked to provide your personal identifiers and to choose a new network password.
If you have problems with PAM, please contact the ITS Help Desk.
LEXIS & Westlaw
Client ID or Client (applies to both LEXIS and Westlaw)
Both LEXIS and Westlaw have entry boxes for a Client ID (or just Client). The Client ID serves several purposes: it can be used to identify the session in your research trail or it can be used to track the research for a specific matter. Westlaw requires that you type at least one character in the Client ID box. This ID can be anything. You can enter an ID that is specific to your search or your can enter your initials. Any entry in the Client ID will not hinder your login. No entry will.
Any student having trouble with their LEXIS or Westlaw access should contact the Institute Office, 312.915.6820.
The Water Tower Campus has several open access labs. These labs are available for drop-in use by Loyola students, faculty, and staff. Please visit the ITS site for information regarding lab location, hours available, printing capabilities, and other computer lab rules and information.
Students use their Universal ID and Password to login to Sakai. This is the same login used for LOCUS.
Materials for Class
Faculty are asked to make classes available to students one week prior to the start of the class. Until the instructor has made his/her class available you will not see this class listed within Sakai. This does not mean you are not registered for the class. Students should only use LOCUS as a means to confirm enrollment.
Please note not all instructors will make their classes available prior to the first class meeting.
Institute Office on Sakai
Besides the information provided on our website or via email to students, the Institute also maintains a site on Sakai. Textbooks, calendar, announcements, and other important links and policy information are shared with students via this online communication tool.
Trouble with Sakai
Any trouble students have with Sakai should be reported directly to Sakai Help at email@example.com. When reporting your trouble please include course information, time/date issue occurred, activity being performed (or attempted), and location (on/off campus).
