Obtaining University ID (UID) Number

In order to access most UCLA systems, employees will first be required to have a 9-digit University ID number (or UID). UIDs are your unique identifying number used by UCLA to create your UCLA Logon ID, enroll in Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and access UCPath Online. UIDs will be generated either when a person enrolls as a student at UCLA or when a person becomes hired as an employee for UCLA. Hiring managers should provide all new employees with the UID number upon completion of the hiring process

Create a UCLA Logon ID and Enroll in Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)


In addition to using a UID number, UCLA systems will also require a UCLA Logon ID (also known as a Bruin OnLine/BOL ID). UCLA Logon IDs will link UIDs with UCLA’s system access software. To provide additional logon security, all employees and students will be required to enroll in Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), which will require two forms of identification when logging into UCLA systems.

What is a UCLA Logon ID?

The UCLA Logon ID is your campus online identifier. It is used for authentication to most online services on campus and is the first step in the campus’ attempt to migrate all systems to a “Single Sign-On” (SSO). It also provides eligible users with access to BOL services such as an e-mail account, campus wireless, VPN, proxy server, web hosting service, free software, etc. Previously, the UCLA Logon ID was called a Bruin OnLine ID, BOLid, BOL username, BOL account, etc.

Please remember that your UCLA Logon ID is a permanent campus identifier and cannot be changed. It will also double as your e-mail address if you are eligible for that service. Select your username carefully. You can create/lookup your UCLA Logon ID and/or reset a forgotten password at:

Enrolling in UCLA Logon ID

  2. Visit‐overview

  7. UCLA Logon ID creation complete

    • You will be prompted to sign up for Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) next.

What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?

(From: BOL Knowledge Base Article: KB0012949)

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an additional layer of security for accessing systems. It relies on users having two or more way of identifying themselves. One often used principle is the idea of people possessing “something you have with something you know”.

A common example of MFA is a debit card: the card itself is the physical item you carry around (“something you have”) that identifies your bank account, and the personal identification number (PIN) is the data that goes with it (“something you know”). Separating those two elements makes it more difficult for someone to access the user’s bank account because they would have to have the physical item in their possession and also know the PIN.

UCLA has done the same with the UCLA Logons, partnering with a company called Duo. After you enroll in MFA, when you login using your UCLA Logon ID, UCLA’s Single Sign-On system will prompt you to enter your UCLA Logon ID (e.g., ‘jbruin’) and your password (something you know) as usual. You will then use your smartphone or another device you’ve configured for MFA (something you have) to authorize your multi-factor authentication.

Please visit this article to learn more.

Enrolling in Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

For detailed, step-by-step instructions for enrolling in MFA, please visit BOL Knowledgebase Article: KB0012931.

To begin the process of enrolling in MFA, do the following:

  2. Log into the application using your UCLA Logon ID and password.

  3. At the “About MFA in UCLA Logon” window, click on the [CONTINUE] button.

  4. Select the preferred device/method of authentication:

    • Smartphone

    • Tablet

    • Cellular Phone

    • Landline

  5. Follow the onscreen prompts on setting up your preferred method of authentication.

  6. At the end of the prompts, your primary preferred device/method of authentication should be complete.

  7. (OPTIONAL) It is recommended that a secondary device/method is also enrolled in MFA in case the primary device/method becomes unavailable. Repeat the above steps again to enroll a secondary device/method.

  • Provide them the University of California Employer Code: 15975

  • Provide them your Social Security Number
