    New to Hamline? New students and employees receive a username and initial passphrase in separate emails  when admitted or hired by Hamline University. 

      CHANGE YOUR HAMLINE PASSPHRASE

    Be aware that changing your Hamline Passphrase will affect most systems at Hamline (Hamline Google email, Blackboard, Learning House, computers labs, library tools, wireless access, network access, etc.)  

    • If you know your Hamline Passphrase and want to change it, log into Identity Management (IDM) and click on "Change Passphrase" in the left menu. If you need more details, visit the Hamline passphrase reset user guide. Please note that the first time you log into IDM you will be required to answer six predefined security questions.   
    • If your Hamline Passphrase has expired, contact the Service Desk at 651-523-2220 and give us your current contact information. An agent will contact you to help you change it.  
     
    PASSPHRASE GUIDELINES
    • Your Hamline Passphrase must be at least 16 characters long, including at least 1 uppercase, 1 lowercase, and 1 number. 
    • This passphrase is case sensitive 
    • Unless not accommodated by an application, use of special characters e.g., "-", "!", "#") is also encouraged to make a passphrase stronger (i.e., even more secure) 
    • You will be required to change your Hamline Passphrase at least every 180 days. 
    • Neglecting to do so will disable your account until you change the passphrase, affecting also your Hamline email. This implies that previous emails will be stored but new emails sent to you Hamline Google Email address will bounce back.
