AccessVU - Existing Users

Overview

Welcome to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center Identity Management page. From here you can manage your VUnetID and related services such as your ePassword and email address(es). VUMC's policy on Computer Privileges and Responsibilities applies to all VUnetID related services.

On June 25, 2018, AccessVU became the identity tool for VUMC. The system is no longer used to create Vanderbilt University usernames or passwords. University users will no longer be able to log in. University users can log into the new identity tool at VU Identity. AccessVU will be the primary Identity Management tool for the Medical Center.

If you are a Vanderbilt University employee or student, go to VU Identity.
