MUnet UniqueIDs

Every student, faculty and staff member has been issued a UniqueID. The UniqueID is intended to be a single identifier for a person for the duration of their association with the University. The normal makeup of a UniqueID is:

the first six characters of the last name (if the last name is less than six characters, the entire last name is used)

the first initial

the middle initial

For example, John Q. Public would have a UniqueID of:


Some UniqueIDs end in a number, rather than initials, because common last names and initials mean that some UniqueIDs are already in use.

UniqueIDs can be up to 8 characters in length.
