UNSW Single Sign On (SSO)

Welcome to the Single Sign On (SSO) Webpage

At UNSW, we have now rolled out SSO capabilities to Moodle and MyUNSW. Since the launch of Moodle SSO, we are now please to launch MyUNSW.

What is SSO?

The UNSW IT Identity team has a roadmap where we will continue to build upon existing capabilities of security technology to protect online security access. 

Benefits of SSO capability consists of: 

Being a time-saving and highly secure user authentication process. SSO lets users access multiple applications with a single account.

SSO will provide a seamless experience to staff and students and enhance UNSW’s digital learning capabilities

You will be able to find more information regarding the login experience and FAQs below. 

What is changing on MyUNSW?

From 19 September 2020, we will be introducing Single Sign On (SSO) to myUNSW as the next rollout of SSO.  This is part of our Identity Roadmap as we continue to roll out SSO across all applications.
