How you reset your password depends on the login type you use. See the list below for links to help you reset or remember your password. If you're not sure which login type you use or need, contact the HUIT Service Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- HarvardKey (all Alumni users as of 9/22/15, as well as other Harvard users by rollout dates listed here): key.harvard.edu
- Harvard University ID (HUID) (most Harvard users who have not yet claimed a HarvardKey): www.pin.harvard.edu
- XID Login: xid.harvard.edu
- HMS eCommons Login: ecommons.med.harvard.edu
After you change your password, you'll want to make sure that you update that password anywhere that it might be stored, such as in your email preferences or apps on your phone or tablet — particularly since repeated login attempts with the wrong password may result in your being locked out of your account. For more information on synchronizing your passwords, see Step 3 in this guide (instructions are for HarvardKey password changes, but apply to other login types, too). If you're confused about which login type gets you into which application, check this itemized list of applications' login types, organized by School. Please note that after you change your password, you may need to log in again to any other HarvardKey-protected applications or browser windows you have open at the time of your password change.
If you use your HUID and password to log in, and you would like to get a temporary password letter in person, you may visit the Harvard Campus Service Center to request one. Please be prepared to show identification.
