The HUID/password (formerly known as PIN) login type no longer meets current Harvard IT security standards and will be retired over the fall of 2016. HUID/password users who have not yet claimed a HarvardKey are encouraged to do so as soon as possible, and will also be reminded by email in advance of their HUID/password credential expiring.
You can always claim your HarvardKey, even after your HUID/password (formerly known as PIN) credential expires. However, once your HUID/password credential expires, you will no longer be able to access many of your Harvard services until you claim your HarvardKey.
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.
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.
