UF Identifier: UFID

In 2003 the University of Florida replaced the use of social security numbers as a person’s primary identification number with a UF identification number (UFID). Your UFID is assigned to you by the university, and becomes the identifier for all transactions and services where personally identifiable information (PII) is required.

In creating the UFID and related identity management information, UF embarked on a significant advancement to protect the personal information of the university community. Using your UFID helps protect you from identity theft, and protects UF from potential data and records theft that could expose personal information of students, faculty, and staff.

The University of Florida takes protecting your identity very seriously, and has strong programs and policies in place to protect your information from unauthorized access.



Please see UFID and GatorLink Questions. If your date of birth is not on file then no UFID can be issued. Once your date of birth has been entered you will be able to access your UFID.

Please contact your Identity Coordinator or email the UF Computing Help Desk (352)392-HELP(4357).

Identity Coordinators
Please contact Identity Access Management Administration for assistance with any UFID questions you may have.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
