U of M Login Pages Get a New Look

Due to software upgrades, beginning on October 2, when you log in to some commonly used University applications such as Gmail (and Google Apps), Moodle, ULearn, and MyU, the login page will look different.

You can feel confident that you are logging into University systems by checking the address bar. The url will always start with one of the following if it's coming from the U of M: https://idp2.shib.umn.edu or https://login.umn.edu.

There will be no service disruption for this change and no action is required by you.

Check out a preview of the new look. Please note that the right column content will vary depending on the application you are attempting to access.
