ULink Upgrade

Our mid-July 2020 ULink Upgrade will provide extensive changes to how users interact with UofL's main information technology systems. Primarily a technical upgrade to the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions (CS) system, our students will notice the biggest improvement to their ULink experience. This upgrade provides a fresh look and feel while increasing usability – beginning with a new portal entrance and responsive navigation for everyone.

what's new?

Buttons, Tiles and Distinct Categories

No more tabs or endless listings. We've organized features, essential action items and user navigation needs. Students will see interactive Tiles for each of the services and tasks needed the most.

Three ULink Log-in Buttons

Let's get you directly into the system you need. We've separated access by the underlying system and functional services for each user group. Only the Employee/HR system requires two-factor authentication (UL2FCTR/Duo).

Prioritizing the User-Experience

Aesthetic changes, new icons and an improved mobile-responsive interface for students. You'll love the updated navigation listings yet already be familiar with UofL's most frequently used ULink pages.

Academic Success Features

With a new Class Search and Enroll process, students will notice some changes when registering for classes. Try the various filters for checking options in the Browse Course Catalog selection.

general FAQs

ULink is still ulink.louisville.edu but you'll see three new choices for sign-on – different options for Students (all services), Faculty (all academic services), and Employees (all HR services). You can still find ULink off of the louisville.edu homepage, upper right click "My Accounts" for a popup box to all major systems or account links.

We've prioritized listings for each type of user of our systems. Each log-in allows for direct access to the appropriate system for those roles where we feature the necessary offerings rather than all possible links available. While ULink is still the place that serves as the one-stop-shop for most things you need to take care of at UofL – signing up for courses, checking accounts, changing personal info, viewing paychecks – it now has a new look and navigation paths. We think you'll like the changes.

Yes! Your UofL userID and password stays the same (well, until you change your password). Often referred to as your ULinkID and password, this combination works with each sign-in to all of our main systems to which you would regularly have access – including louisville.edu email, Blackboard and other important university systems. And as before, if you are having difficulty with your ULink userID or password you can always contact our ITS HelpDesk for assistance.

Yes, because these are really two different systems. We recognize that our users access ULink for different purposes. If you are in ULink to check your class schedule or financial account, you'll sign-in to the Student system. If you are in ULink to view your paycheck, you'll go through the Employee sign-in via the UL2FCTR/Duo process to access the HR system. It is the best way to keep your information separate and secure in both environments.

Yes, because you will need to access the appropriate system for the function required. We recognize that our users access ULink for different purposes. If you are in ULink to check your Class Roster or Course Schedule, this information is available in the academic or Student system. If you are in ULink to change your personal information or access tax forms, you'll go through the Employee sign-in via the UL2FCTR/Duo process to access the HR system. It is the best way to keep your information separate and secure in both environments.

We've got webpages dedicated to both Students and Faculty/Employees with more details about changes and helpful short videos on the most used items in ULink. You can search the videos by category or keyword. They are meant to help guide you through all of the new navigation, student tiles and functionality.
