Managing Your Account(s)

All technology resources on campus require you to log in with your specific C.L.ID & password combo. The Office of Information Technology (OIT) maintains the Common Logon IDentification (C.L.ID) that was created when you became a member of the UL Lafayette campus community.

  • UCS accounts allow you to log in to campus computers, the wireless system (UWIN & ResNet), ULINK, and other technology resources.  Every member of UL Lafayette will have a UCS account.
