Manage your TAMIU Account


The Universal Identification Number, or UIN, is your employee number assigned by the Texas A&M University System through the Department of Human Resources and follows the format 123-00-1234. When contacting the Help Desk at the Office of Information Technology, you will be asked for your UIN when verification of identity is needed, such as resetting a password.


The Net ID is your username for many TAMIU online services including your employee email, UConnect, and eLearning. In addition it is also used to log into the computer on campus as well as the TAMIU wireless networks. In addition, it forms part of your email address in the format netid@tamiu.edu.


Employee Email

All TAMIU employees have an email assigned to them and can be accessed by going to https://mail.tamiu.edu. Your email address is your NetID@tamiu.edu. If your department requires the use of a shared mailbox, it can be added on with the assistance of OIT to your Microsoft Outlook desktop application. However, from time to time, you may need to access a shared mailbox from the Outlook Web App. In this instance, once you are logged in, click on your name in the upper right corner and type in address of the shared mailbox and click “Open…”

Two-factor Authentication (Duo)

Add an extra level of security to your NetID account. Verifying your identity using a second factor (like your phone or other mobile device) prevents anyone but you from logging in, even if they know your password. Visit the Two-factor authentication page for more information.

Virtual Private Network(VPN) with Duo

To request VPN access please fill out the VPN Access Form (Laserfiche).

Use TAMIU Credentials to access your VPN using Cisco AnyConnect. Instructions on how to use two-factor authentication when using Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client can be found here.
