Top Calls for Help
The following topics include some of our most frequent requests — accounting for about 80 percent of our calls. Please review the content below to see if the help you need is here.
Community System Procedure for UMB Affiliates ▾
Affiliates are primarily individuals who are not paid employees or registered students who need access to University resources.
The affiliate information is entered into the Community System.
NOTE: Getting an affiliate account does not automatically grant access to resources that require individuals to be a paid employee or registered student (for example, access to library resources or discounted software).
Certain applications (such as eUM HR, eUM Financials, eUM RAVEN, COEUS) require an additional form be filled out for access.
Building access requires an additional form to be filled out.
If you have any questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at 410 706-HELP or via email.
Duo & Multi-Factor Authentication
Duo is the University of Maryland's solution for multi-factor authentication ▾
Multi-factor authentication is one of the most effective methods to prevent unauthorized access to your account.
Multi-factor authentication requires something you know (your UMID password) and something you have (like a smartphone or tablet app, or a mobile phone or landline phone) as an added layer of security to prevent anyone else from accessing your account.
