Access your courses and address any concerns
Your UMNet ID
Your UMNet ID will allow you to access your UofM email account, your UM Learn account (the university’s learning management system), use University of Manitoba electronic library resources and access to Wi-Fi on campus. It is very important for new students to claim their UMNet ID as soon as possible, as the university will only correspond with you through your myumanitoba.ca email account.
To claim your UMNet ID, please visit signUM. Follow the onscreen instructions to create a new account (be sure to enter your date of birth in the format requested).

You will require your UMNet ID and password to access UM Learn.
All grades, with exception of the grades for the final assessment will be posted on UM Learn.
Final grades for all non-degree courses (where start dates began after March 31, 2014) can be found by visiting Aurora and selecting “enter secure area”. You will be asked to log in with your User ID (this is your student number) and your password. If you have not accessed Aurora yet, your password will be set to your date
Forgot your password?
If you have forgotten your User ID or your password has been disabled and needs to be reset, please contact Student and Instructor Services.
If you have already claimed your UMNet ID, you may also reset your password through SignUM by logging in and then following the on-screen instructions.

A “Hold Status” may limit access to your student record and will prevent registration and graduation. Contact Student and Instructor Services to direct you to the appropriate area.
