User Account

The user account uniquely identifies you on the JAIST network for various computing services. Your user account is created when you become a JAIST member (student or employee).

A user account is necessary when you use the following equipments and services.

  • JAIST Cloud Desktop (Linux/Windows)
  • E-mail
  • Web-based e-mail, or “WebMail”
  • Registration to wireless LAN system, etc.

A user account is also called a login ID or just an account in some campus systems.

  • Faculty and Staff: t-sentan, kozaka, miya-k



Purpose of the password

The password is important to protect your authority on the JAIST computers. If other persons know your password, it means that you have given them your authority on the computers.
The password must be at least 10 uppercase letters + lowercase letters + numbers + symbols.


It is a system that unifies the authentication information when using various systems on campus.
The SSO (single sign-on) function makes it possible to use different systems with one authentication (limited to the same Web browser within a certain period of time).

For details, please read the JAIST-SSO page below.



I forgot my password.

Please come to RCACI desk (Room I-24) with your student ID.

* If you have already set up a password reset email address, you can reset your password yourself. Please see here for details.
