About Onyens

"Onyen" is the name for UNC's campus-wide identifier that you can use to gain access to various electronic resources on campus. Although it is a word, you can think of it as an acronym for the "only name you'll ever need." The distinctive name is intended to prevent confusing it with the myriad other userids that exist across campus. Several factors make it stand out from these other user identification schemes:

With these factors in mind, Onyens represent a significant part of the commitment by Information Technology Services to provide equitable campuswide access to a range of ITS and other services. As technology permits, Onyen based access will be used for an increasing number of services both within ITS and across campus.

The document Onyen Policy outlines the policies, standards and terms of agreement associated with Onyens.

UNC students, staff and faculty can use the Onyen home page to create and manage their Onyens, to subscribe to Onyen services, and use Onyen functions.
