As a DePaul student, you have been issued the following email and login credentials during the orientation process:
You will need these credentials to log in to various applications and DePaul systems like Desire2Learn(D2L), Campus Connect, Zoom, and Office 365. Because our transition to BlueKey login is still in progress, most systems will request your email address and password, but some systems may still request your username and password. Learn about authentication and password security.
Having trouble finding your login credentials or password? Contact the Help Desk at email@example.com or call (312) 362-8765.
Register now for BlueKey multi-factor authentication and self-service password reset. Watch this tutorial video for help registering. When logging into certain DePaul systems, you will be asked to authenticate your identity through Microsoft's multi-factor authentication using a designated device, such as your mobile phone. An increasing number of DePaul systems and applications will use BlueKey multi-factor authentication in the future. Registering also allows you to reset your password without assistance from the Help Desk. Learn more about Microsoft's authentication process or watch this tutorial video.
Important Note: If you have a smartphone, please check your multi-factor settings. The preferred “Default sign-in method” is “Microsoft Authenticator - notification”. Please set the default to this method.
Please add backup verification methods! It will make life much easier if you ever lose or can’t access your phone. Add verification methods here at bluekey.depaul.edu/multifactor or watch the video in this article.
