Login Guide

Members of the University can use their registered email address or student number to log in to UD IT systems. If you forget your password, you can change or reset it.

Which login details do I use for which systems?

Single Sign On (SSO) Account

Click here to reset your SSO password

The following systems use Single Sign On (SSO) Account login:

  • ARK
  • Library Hub
  • Portal
  • Divinity Forms
  • UMS (Unit Management System)

An easy way to tell when your SSO credentials are required is if the login page looks like this and the URL is idp.divinity.edu.au:

If you are signed in to SSO on a different system, you will not be asked to sign in again.

To access ARK using SSO, click the Student and Staff Login button:

When prompted to access a Library Hub resource using SSO, click the UD Students and Staff button:

Paradigm Sign In


For students

The email address used is the one registered in the University’s Student Management System called Paradigm. In addition, a username that consists of your student ID number can be used.

For example: john.smith.as.example@gmail.com or 2024123123.

If you are unsure which email address you used on your enrolment, contact the Registrar at your School or College.

For staff

The email address is the primary email address registered in the University’s StaffPlus system when your appointment was made.

In addition, a username has been generated that consists of your firstname(s) and lastname(s) joined together with a period in between. This is all in lowercase. If your name(s) has a space or apostrophe, this has been removed.

Examples are: john.smith or jaclyn.ohare or gerhard.vonrad.

If you don’t know which email address was used, contact the staff member at the College or School who made your appointment. This will likely be the Head of College, Academic Dean, Research Coordinator or a designated HR person.
