What is HarvardKey?

HarvardKey is Harvard University’s unified credential for accessing a wealth of University applications and services with a single, convenient login name and password. In addition to enabling access to the Harvard applications and services you use every day, HarvardKey also offers an easy-to-use self-service portal for managing your account, including changing your password and updating your recovery information in case you forget your login details. HarvardKey also provides optional two-step verification to keep you even more secure.

As of December 3, 2015, users in FAS, GSAS, Harvard College, DCE, Central Admin, GSE, GSD, HDS, HLS, HMS, HSDM, HSPH, and SEAS are eligible to claim and use a HarvardKey.

For Harvard Alumni, HarvardKey replaces your old alumni.harvard login name and password (as of September 22, 2015) for access to a variety of online features to help you connect with the Harvard community.

If you haven't yet claimed a HarvardKey, you can continue to log in at all HarvardKey login screens using your usual credentials simply by clicking the appropriate tab at the top of the screen.

HarvardKey was released in September 2015 and supersedes the PIN System previously used at the University.
