UF Identifier: UFID
In 2003 the University of Florida replaced the use of social security numbers as a person’s primary identification number with a UF identification number (UFID). Your UFID is assigned to you by the university, and becomes the identifier for all transactions and services where personally identifiable information (PII) is required.
In creating the UFID and related identity management information, UF embarked on a significant advancement to protect the personal information of the university community. Using your UFID helps protect you from identity theft, and protects UF from potential data and records theft that could expose personal information of students, faculty, and staff.
Please see UFID and GatorLink Questions. If your date of birth is not on file then no UFID can be issued. Once your date of birth has been entered you will be able to access your UFID.
Please contact Identity Access Management Administration for assistance with any UFID questions you may have.
