ETH user name
The ETH user name is generated and assigned automatically by the system and cannot be changed – not even in the event of change of the member’s surname (e.g. after marriage).
Three ETH password exist:
- ETH password for web applications, AAI (LDAP)
- ETH password for email (Active Directory)
- ETH network password
Two password groups exist:
- Group = ETH password for web applications, AAI (LDAP) and ETH password for email (Active Directory)
- Group = ETH Network password (Radius)
All members of ETH Zurich receive at the beginning of their study or employment an ETH user name and an ETH password for web applications, AAI (LDAP). They must change this password as soon as possible. Here you can find instructions on how to do this.
In addition to the ETH username and password, certain applications are protected with multi-factor authentication. On the MFA page you will find an explainer video and detailed instructions on how to proceed with MFA registration and use.
