UIN and NetID Information


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.
