What is Unified Login?
From 6:00 PM on June 17, 2023, Unified Login will simplify the user experience for students and employees by providing one login method to access applications listed in one.kpu.ca
What does Unified Login mean for me?
From June 17, KPU students and employees will use their KPU-issued email address (@kpu.ca or @student.kpu.ca), instead of using their “KPU ID Number”, to login to applications listed in one.kpu.ca
Why Unified Login?
Depending on the application one is trying to access, there are currently two ways to login. One is using “KPU ID Number” and the other being a KPU-issued email address. For example, “Student Email (New Version)” requires a @student.kpu.ca email address whereas “Register for Classes” requires “KPU ID Number” to login. With Unified Login both applications will use a KPU-issued email address from June 3.
Affected Student Applications
All student logins from One.KPU.ca that use student numbers prior to June 17th will now require the full student email address @student.kpu.ca to access those applications.
The following applications will be excluded from the Unified Login until a later time:
Affected Employee Applications
As part of this initiative, the following applications’ sign-on will be affected. All employee logins to these applications will require MFA (multifactor authentication) moving forward.
Admin Pages (Banner 9)
Banner 9 apps (Employee Self Service, General Self Service, Student Self Service Registration, Web Time Entry, Student Profile, BDM, Communication Management)
FAST (Finance, HR, WebReq, PCARD, Budget, etc)
My Library Account
Online Self-Service (OSS.KPU.CA)
TeamDynamix (Facilities request)
Employee login tip
Employees using the Microsoft Edge Browser are automatically logged into applications listed in one.kpu.ca when they log into the laptop or desktop computer KPU provided. Other web browsers require you to authenticate once.
Student Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Due to the increase in cyber security threats targeted at KPU Students, the Information Security Team will be launching MFA for students in a phased approach starting in Summer 2023.
