Why is this change happening? Heading link

The UIC login page is being updated to align with current university branding, provide up-to-date help resources, and reflect the ability to use your UIC email address or your NetID.

Additionally, several current university systems, such as Microsoft Office 365, use Microsoft’s authentication service which requires use of your full UIC email address.

Adding support for use of your UIC email address instead of your NetID improves consistency with the UIC Microsoft login page, identifiable by the login page on the left.

Which resources only accept NetID to authenticate? Heading link

UofI Systems Login Page

You will need to continue using your NetID to access these resources:

  • UIC VPN Service
  • Apple computers managed by UIC
  • U of I Enterprise Login page (image on right)

What else do I need to be aware of? Heading link

As always, it is important to keep your login credentials safe and be aware of where you enter your UIC login credentials. Be sure to review emails with links to external pages carefully and never enter login credentials on suspicious or unknown pages.
