Your HUID  is an 8-digit number in the form 12345678. You can find your HUID on your ID Card. ID cards are issued by central Campus Services: http://www.campusservicecenter.harvard.edu/services/id-cards

Most web and other on-line resources at GSD and throughout Harvard require your HarvardKey as authentication. HarvardKey is a combination of your official GSD email address (e.g. jdoe@gsd.harvard.edu) and a password-or-phrase that you control.

Note also that starting Fall 2016, you are required to enable TwoStep authentication on your HarvardKey.
