UWin Account

Your UWin Account is your personal digital identification for accessing a number of on-line services at the University of Windsor. A valid and active UWin Account is required of everyone associated with the University of Windsor who plans on using any of the IT systems and services.

Active Directory (AD) & Azure Active Directory (AAD) with Intune

Active Directory (AD) is a legacy Microsoft directory that stores information about members of the domain, including devices and users, verifies their credentials and defines their access rights.  Azure Active Directory (AAD) is a modern cloud-based identity and access management solution that also provides a foundation for device management solution called Intune. During the transition period, both directories are co-existing and are working together in our hybrid AD environment.

Enterprise Directory Services (EDS) & Central LDAP Directory

Enterprise Directory Services (eDS) aims at enabling the right individuals to access the right resources at the right times and for the right reasons. Central LDAP Directory aggregates user data extracted from so called "authoritative sources", such as HR system (VIP), UWinsite Student, and Campus Phone Directory.

Employee Onboarding & Offboarding

I.T. Services will assist with I.T. related employee onboarding (workstation setup, office telephone service, access to systems and resources), and offboarding (termination of access, workstation redeployment).

UWin Friend Account

A UWin Friend Account is a guest account that allows someone who is not entitled to a UWin Account to access some of the University of Windsor online systems that require authentication. It does not, however, automatically authorise that person to use any services.
