Determining Your Miami UniqueID and MUnet password

All faculty, staff and students are assigned a Miami UniqueID and MUnet Password. These credentials are used to sign in to the vast majority of Miami systems including email, myMiami, and BannerWeb. 

Helpful hint: Your UniqueID forms the first part of your Miami email address:

Miami UniqueID

The Miami UniqueID is generated using data from Human Resources or Registrar files. It generally consists of:

First 6 characters of last name
+ First initial
+ Middle initial

Example: The UniqueID for John Q. Public would be PublicJQ.

Note: Some UniqueIDs do not follow this pattern. For example, if the sequence results in a UniqueID that already exists, a number is substituted for the last character(s).

If you don"t know your Miami UniqueID, you can find it on the web using:

MUnet Password

By default, your MUnet password is derived from your birth date and Social Security Number as follows:

2 digit birth month
+ 2 digit birth day
+ last 4 digits of your Social Security Number OR last 4 digits of your Banner ID number (sometimes referred to as your Banner "plus" number).


  • A birthdate of March 1 and a Social Security Number of 123-45-6789 results in a default MUnet password of 03016789. 
  • A birthdate of March 1 and a Banner ID number ending in 1234 results in a default MUnet password of 03011234.


If your password is at the default value, you will be required to change it after logging into a web-based service. Please see MUnet passwords must be changed if at the default value for details on this requirement. You can change your MUnet password at
