Set up a UNI Recovery Email to retrieve your password

An Account Recovery Email is an external (non-Columbia) email address used to help verify your identity when you can't do so using the regular UNI login method, typically when you forgot your password.

You can update your account with this new option, which simplifies and secures the account recovery process, should you ever need to use it.


To add or update your Account Recovery Email Address, go to and choose "Add or Update my Account Recovery Email."

Duo MFA is required, so if you haven't enrolled in Duo yet, you'll be prompted to set it up when you log in.

For questions or assistance, please submit a ticket to the CUIT Service Desk or email
