AccessVU - New User

Overview

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 VU Identity system at VU Identity. AccessVU will be the primary Identity Management tool for the Medical Center.

If you are a Vanderbilt University employee or student, VU Identity is your account claiming system.


Welcome to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center account claiming page. From this page you will be able to claim your Medical Center account.

Your VUnetID and ePassword will be your login credentials (user name and password) for the majority of systems at the Medical Center.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center's policy on Computer Privileges and Responsibilities applies to all VUnetID related services, applications and resources.
