Please always use your primary e-mail address (check primary e-mail address) and your Active Directory password (https://identity.uzh.ch) to log in to Microsoft 365 UZH. For additional security, multi-factor authentication (MFA) is required for all users. Therefore, additional factors must be registered with the first login.

After entering a valid e-mail address you will be redirected to the UZH login page. Here you can log in with your Active Directory password.

All users of Microsoft 365 UZH are set up by way of the Active Directory (AD) of the Central IT by the UZH's identity management. The allocation of licenses is done through AD group memberships. For the registration a mechanism called ADFS is used, which always checks the registration against the Active Directory of the Central IT. Instead of using an independent password, Microsoft 365 UZH uses your Active Directory password which you can maintain yourself via the identity management (https://identity.uzh.ch).
