Your new username

au[AUID]

Your new username has the formula au[AUID].

If your AU ID is 123456, your new username will be au123456.

You can find your AU ID by searching for your name here.

au[AUID]@uni.au.dk

In some IT-systems and IT service you need to specify that you are associated with AU, e.g. when you log on to Eduroam (wifi) which is an international collaboration with hundreds of universities participating worldwide, and therefore, you need to use a longer formula of your username, namely, au[AUID]@uni.au.dk..

Even though this username resemples an email address, it is not an email address and it has no influence on your AU email address which remains the same.

What is uni.au.dk?

You new username is connected to an user account that is activated in a new shared user catalogue (AD) which is called uni.au.dk.

Why do I need to set up a new profile in Outlook on my computer and phone?

uni.au.dk which is the future shared catalogue for all users and IT systems at AU is already used for AU's email and calendar system, however, based on the user account you log on to your computer with.

When we activate your new user account, the connection between your mailbox in uni.au.dk and the user account you use to log on to your computer with is broken. Therefore, a consequence of activating your new user account is that you have to set up a new profile in Outlook and log on to webmail with your new username and password. 

You must continue logging on to your computer with your current username and password.
