First time logging in?

To access personalized YukonU online tools like Office 365, you'll need to log in. You'll use the same login for many tools, including Office 365, Moodle and Banner. This is also the same login information you would use if you log in to a computer on campus.

Your login name is your full YukonU email address, in the format:

If you're logging in for the first time, you will have received an email at your personal email address (the one you used when you registered with YukonU: gmail, for example) with your temporary password. If you did not receive this email, please check your spam folder. If you still cannot find this email, you can select "Forgot my password" below the password line. Doing so will send a new email and temporary password to your personal email. Follow the instructions in the email to reset your password. If you need help to reset your password, please view this video. Here is more information on password best practices.

After you log in for the first time, you must change your password. From Office 365, click the gear icon in the top right corner of the page, then click 'Change Your Password.'
