Getting a Uniqname and Directory Profile—
Students on the Flint Campus

Uniqnames and passwords are created for Flint students using an automated process that begins with the Flint Registrar's Office. Flint students can direct questions to U-M Flint Information Technology Services.

When MCommunity receives information that a person is a Flint student and that person has a uniqname, an MCommunity Directory profile is created automatically. MCommunity receives weekly data updates from the Flint campus.

When a Flint student has a uniqname and an MCommunity Directory profile, an Active Directory (UMROOT) account and a U-M Google account are automatically created for them. In addition, an email forwarding address for the student's Flint email account ( is added to their directory entry. This allows the student to receive email at their address. Flint students use an email and calendar service provided by Flint Information Technology Services instead of U-M Google Mail and Calendar.

Note: Flint students receive more than one password to use with their uniqname. The UMICH password is referred to as the UMICH, Kerberos or Ann Arbor password. (see Flint ITS Student and Alumni Services)
