Accounts: About UNH Active Directory Accounts

Students are automatically provisioned with a student Active Directory account on the WILDCAT domain. See Wildcat Account FAQ for additional information.

Faculty and Staff
The Active Directory domain for UNH Faculty and Staff is called AD. A UNH AD account is used to access university computers, computer clusters, Outlook Exchange Email accounts, networked printers, BOX, VPN, Registration for Wifi access, and other applications.

UNH AD and Exchange Email accounts are automatically provisioned for most new faculty and staff. The accounts will be created within one business day of the employee’s start date if all HR paperwork has been processed.

My AD Account is Locked.  How do I get it unlocked?

As a security precaution, UNH network security will automatically lock accounts if multiple unsuccessful log-in attempts occur. If you try to log in to your computer or a UNH application you will get a message that your account is locked.

If your account is locked:

  • Call the IT Service Desk at (603)-862-4242 (Monday thru Friday, 7:30am to 5:00pm)
  • OR
  • Visit the ATSC in the Dimond Library in Durham. Click here for location information and support hours.  

Note: Since your computer, mobile phones, and other devices will store your UNH password, you may experience a locked account after changing your password. If you recently changed your password and then got locked, see:
