As you all know, users at CUMC have multiple login accounts used to access different CU/NYH systems.
UNI: All Columbia University employees are assigned a UNI. Each UNI is unique and it is constructed from your initials and numbers. It is used to access CU website services (RASCAL, ARC, https://my.columbia.edu, etc). To manage your UNI, please go to: http://uni.columbia.edu. CUMC Exchange email account (MC domain account) – CUMC employees are assigned an exchange e-mail account such as, UNI@cumc.columbia.edu. This account uses your UNI ID as well, but since it’s a different authentication system, the password is not related to the other account. The same account (and password) is also use to sing to CUMC computers connected to MC domain. To manage it, please go to: http://cumc.columbia.edu/it/howto/domain/mypassword.html
NYH account - to manage it, please visit: https://infonet.nyp.org/
Registering devices used for CUMC business purposes
This includes personal devices (cell phones, other mobile devices and computers) that are used to use CUMC information including CUMC email and any application or software program containing patient or CUMC information. This includes any device which access the CUMC network either through a wired or wireless method INCLUDING VPN access. Users SHOULD NOT assume that if they are accessing the network through VPN their information is secure. IT IS NOT. Security of their device if not registered/secured can be lacking.
Accessing email accounts:
Users are able to access their CUMC Exchange e-mail account via any web browser at: https://mail.cumc.columbia.edu/owa (also, for easy remembering, you can go to main CU page (http://www.columbia.edu) and click on Email/CUMC Outlook Web Access
NYH users can go to https://infonet.nyp.org/
This is an application that is being offered by CUMCIT. However, it requires a DA’s approval. We are still evaluating the security issues but at this point recommend AGAINST moving ahead with this application for your faculty.
Due to security purposes, CUMC users are to use the secure Athens wi-fi service. You will need to use your UNI and UNI’s credential (Not your exchange or MC domain credentials) or your CWID (hospital credential). It required additional components to be installed to establish the wi-fi connection. Please contact your IP support group for additional details. Software available for CU employs:
