  • Password Invalid

    The system says the your "User Name and/or Password are invalid."
    ~ Make sure your password is current, has it been 180 days since the last password reset? Your User Name will always remain the same.

  • How do I get a KU username and password?

    All students receive their unique KU username and Student ID shortly after applying to the university. This information is mailed to the student's home address. This information is then used to setup the account with a new password.

    The KU username/password combination is used to access all systems: MyKU, email, campus wired and Wi-Fi networks, Desire2Learn, student payroll, lab computers, etc.
