How do I log into UQSafe?

All UQ staff and students are automatically provided with an account and username that allows access to a range of online resources, including UQSafe. Accounts are supplied and managed by Information Technology Services (ITS). Signing into UQSafe with your UQ username will create a UQ Authenticate session that lasts for 8 hours.

Staff (including casual and unpaid staff)

Most staff usernames begin with 'uq', followed by the first initial of your given name and the first five letters of your surname. For example: uqjblogg. Because many staff members can have the same surnames and first initials, usernames can also contain numbers. For example: uqjblog3.

  • If you don’t have a staff account, check with your supervisor, local HR officer or central HR Division to verify that your details have been entered correctly into Aurion/Workday.

Students (undergraduate and HDR students)

Your username starts with an 's' followed by six digits: drop the first and last digits from your student number and use the remaining digits (e.g. if your student number is 3123 4567, your student username is s123456). Use this username to log in to mySI-net, my. UQ, Single sign-on, and campus computers.

Staff of Controlled Entities, Contractors, Visitors

UQ can provide accounts and internet services to staff of UQ's controlled entities and affiliated organisations.
