As of late 1999, students' user names changed from using student number following a change in University policy. Now, your login consists of a combination of the letters of your (first, middle and last) names followed by three numbers selected at random. This login name is revealed to you when you use SIRIUS. You are able to change it but you should make note of this login name at least long enough to be able to do so. Fear not if you have forgoteth -- the Help Desk can assist you!
Those with existing accounts from previous years will still use the login name consisting of their student number; however, they do have the option of changing it to be consistent with the new policy.
