There is a link on MyUM or you can also go directly to the login screen at Your username is your first intial, last name (up to 12 characters), and the last two digits of your student id number. For example, my name is Josephine College and my id number is 1234567. My username would be jcollege67. Resulting with my new email address being password is the first three letters of your first name (with the first letter capitalized) followed by the first five digits of your student id. Ex: Jos12345
**If you have 5 numbers in your student ID, this will be the same save for 1 change.
