Single Sign On
Sign on once, save time
Single sign-on saves you time and energy each day.
Single sign-on allows you to:
- Log in with your UHart ID and password in one software or web-based application (i.e., housing portal), and then
- Access many other single-sign-on enabled applications (i.e. Blackboard) that you might use within a 90 minute session without having to login again.
Without it, you might have a different username and password for each different application that you use. Or, you would be required to type your user credentials every time you open a new website or application that required you to authenticate as a UHart user.
Using Single Sign-On
You do not need to access a specific website or application to initiate the single sign-on process. With single sign-on, when you attempt to access a secure University of Hartford website or application that requires your UHart ID for login, you are prompted to type your UHart ID and password.
After that, usually for the next 90 minutes, protected websites and applications will allow you to access them without requiring you to enter your UHart ID and password information again and again. However, some websites and applications will request that you authenticate more often due to extra security requirements.
Note: The single sign-on is valid only in the browser that you are using when you log in. If you switch to a different browser, you will need to complete the sign-on process again.
When you attempt to access a secure website or application, the following screen appears. Type your UHart ID and your password and continue exploring the UHart website.
