All University students and employees have access to several important accounts at Duquesne, the most important of which is your MultiPass account. You use your MultiPass username to sign into many Duquesne online resources, including DORI, Canvas, DuqNet Wi-Fi and your University email.

Set up your MultiPass account

You can set up your MultiPass account by visiting, clicking Setup MultiPass and following the onscreen prompts.

You use either your Duquesne ID number or MultiPass username to set up your MultiPass account. For students, your Duquesne ID number is provided during the admissions process. For employees, Human Resources will send an email containing your MultiPass password to your secondary email address on file.

You are required to provide a secondary email address when setting up your MultiPass account. Doing so will help keep your credentials secure and expedite communications between the IT Service Desk and yourself if your account ever becomes compromised. Providing a secondary email also allows you to request a password reset link if you forget the password for your MultiPass account.

When is my MultiPass account created?

As a student, your MultiPass account is created when you are accepted by the University. When you are an accepted student, you will have limited access in DORI. After you submit your deposit to the University, you will gain full access to DORI and all its content.

As an employee, your MultiPass account is created when Human Resources processes your employment paperwork.

How do I find my MultiPass username?

Visit and click on the Setup MultiPass button. From there, you can follow the on-screen prompts to obtain your MultiPass username.

I forgot my MultiPass password. How can I reset it?

Visit, enter your MultiPass username and click Forgot Password. On the following screen, you can choose to reset your password via your secondary email address or secret questions.

Do I use my MultiPass account to sign into University-managed computers?

All University-managed computers with a Windows OS, including CTS lab computers, will require users to log in with their MultiPass username and password.

Why do I need a strong password?

Your MultiPass password is the key you use to access personal information that you've stored on your computer and in your online accounts. If a cybercriminal steals your password, they can use your name to open new credit card accounts, apply for a mortgage or pose as you in online transactions. In many cases, you will not notice these cyberattacks until it is too late.

The stronger you make your password, the more difficult it will be for a cybercriminal to steal your personal information. Review our credentials and password service requirements and enroll in Duo MFA for increased account security.
