Introducing uoAccess Login

The University is moving towards a single sign-on system called uoAccess. To do so, we are gradually migrating web applications to uoAccess. Once we’ve completed these migrations, you’ll only need to log in once to securely access all your applications.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What changed on August 22, 2016?

Effective August 22, 2016, the login for uoZone (students) and VirtuO (employees) has changed. You must now use your uOttawa email credentials (enter the email account username that you normally enter in front of @uOttawa.ca, as well as your email account password).

What does this mean for students?

  • When accessing uoZone, students will no longer use their student number and password to login.
  • Learning Management System (LMS) and other applications that require you to login with your student number are not affected by this change.

What does this mean for employees?

  • When accessing VirtuO, employees will no longer use their employee number and password to login.
  • Learning Management System (LMS), FAST, My HR Profile and other applications that require you to login with your employee number are not affected by this change.

2. What is my uoAccess ID?

Your uoAccess ID is your passport to many websites, applications and systems at the University of Ottawa. Your uoAccess ID is the short name before your @uOttawa.ca e-mail address (ex: jsmit000).

3. What is my uoAccess Password?

Your uoAccess password is the same password you use for many applications at the University of Ottawa.

  • For students, your password is the same as your uoZone, Google, Learning Management System and Library applications.
  • For employees, your password is the same as your VirtuO, Exchange, FAST and UNIWeb applications.
