Your Accounts


All University students and employees have access to several important accounts at Duquesne, the most important of which is your MultiPass account.

On this page


Your MultiPass username and password give you access to DORI, Blackboard, Email, and Wi-Fi. You are required to change your password every four months. Two weeks before your password is scheduled to expire, you will receive an email notifying you to change your password. You will also see a reminder to change your password anytime you log into DORI during these two weeks.

Setting Up Your MultiPass

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

PDF Instructions

Students and employees set up their MultiPass accounts using either their Duquesne ID number or MultiPass username. Duquesne ID numbers are provided to incoming students during the admissions process. Employees receive their MultiPass username in an email sent to their secondary email address by Human Resources.

Secondary Email is Mandatory

Listing a secondary email account in MultiPass is mandatory and will help keep your credentials safe and expedite communications between the CTS Help Desk and yourself if your account ever becomes compromised. A secondary email also allows you to request a password reset link if you ever forget the password for your MultiPass account and cannot access your email. Your secondary email address will be recorded in our system whenever you apply to the university, whether you are applying to be a student or an employee.

What Do I Do If I Forgot My Password?

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 to Log 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 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 this information, 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 campus password policy for more details. In addition, learn more about multi-factor authentication with Duo below.
