To access Alumni resources, you must claim your HarvardKey. Once you have claimed your HarvardKey, you can also use it to access resources that you previously accessed with your HUID and its associated password. There is no reason to wait to claim your HarvardKey.
Harvard has transitioned to the new HarvardKey system for Alumni user account management. HarvardKey is replacing your current alumni.harvard login name and password as part of a larger plan to improve the Alumni online experience. The decision to bring Alumni login into the HarvardKey unified login system also means that when students graduate, they will no longer need to claim a separate Alumni account — their HarvardKey automatically transitions to Alumni status.
For the next several months, users who don’t yet have a HarvardKey can still log in to all the same resources by selecting the “HUID” tab on the HarvardKey login screen and entering their HUID and its associated password.
