UIN Creation and Requests

UINs are generated automatically for employees, student applicants, and many others, as detailed on the Who Gets a UIN page. In all other cases, we generate UINs only when requested for a valid need.

Department heads, authorized unit sponsors, and ID Center staff may request UINs for persons who are eligible for an ID but do not have a UIN. A person cannot request a UIN on his own behalf. System and university retirees who need a UIN must contact their their local ID to learn more:

UIN Requests

  • Do you already have a UIN but forgot it? Use the Find Your UIN lookup.
  • Does your guest need a NetID or other service?  You must obtain a UIN from us first. Then you can request NetIDs and other services from the units that provide them.
    Email a completed UIN Request form [PDF] to our Help Desk.
  • Do you need several UINs? Contact our Help Desk. We can help you streamline your request.
