UMKC Appointment

If you are supposed to have a UMKC appointment but have not yet received official notice or a username and password, please contact the Office of Faculty Development.

You must use your UMKC email username and password

You can no longer use your UMKC ID number and your last name to access UMKC library resources.  

If you don't know your email username, you can look up your information in the UMKC directory.  Search for your last name in "Name Lookup," then expand the entry for your name to view your UMKC email address.  

To reset your email password, go to  Select "Reset a Forgotten or Expired Password" and click on "Reset your UMKC password."  Enter your username, click submit, then select the preferred contact to receive your password reset.  If you do not see your current contact information, call the UMKC IS Technology Support Center at 816-235-2000 for assistance.
