UH Username and Password


Your UH Username and Password are like electronic fingerprints that identify you and allow access to MyUH online services including registration, email, and access to your personal records. The security of your account depends on how well YOU protect this identity so someone else cannot impersonate you. Protect your UH Username and Password and do not share them with others.

Once you know your Username and Password, you should immediately set up your Password Reset Questions. Establishing these questions will help us verify your identity and allow you to reset your Password online. If you do not set up your Password Reset Questions, you will have to do an in-person password reset should you need one in the future.


What is a UH Username?

  • You will be assigned one UH Username.
  • Your UH Username is valid for the duration of your academic or professional career in the UH System.
  • Your UH Username and UH email address will not change, even if your name changes or your association with UH alters.
