Why HarvardKey?

In the past, studying, teaching, or working at Harvard meant managing dozens of different login names and passwords.The Identity & Access Management program at Harvard University Information Technology introduced HarvardKey in 2015 to simplify user access, and ever since has been enhancing the service to extend HarvardKey to more Harvard-affiliated users. 

 A "single identity for life" the HarvardKey enables access to the applications and services Harvard users need every day using a single login name and password. HarvardKey makes it easier for new users to get started and simplifies login as individuals move about the University regardless of the role they have at any given time. It also helps keep the Alumni community connected.
