Accounts and Passwords
The NUID (Nebraska Unique Identifier) was developed as a replacement for the Social Security Number as an unique identifier in campus systems. Your NUID is used as your log on ID in several systems, such as MavLINK, Firefly, SAP and other systems on your campus. Those systems that use TrueYou as the authentication system will also have the same ID (NUID) and password for all of those systems.
- UNO NetID
The UNO NetID is your username and password for online services that are specific to UNO, such as Canvas, Office 365, gMAV, etc. Every student, faculty member, and staff member has a UNO NetID. Your NetID and all associated accounts are automatically generated upon enrollment of class, registration for orientation, registration for placement exams, or as part of the hiring process. It can take up to three (3) days for accounts to be completely generated and accessible.
Information Technology Services supports a number of systems on campus; three of the most critical services are email, Box and Canvas.
- Office 365
