Change of Portal UID
Staff can choose an HKU Portal UID of their own when they submit the application for HKU Portal account.
Students can only change the pre-assigned HKU Portal UID (and the corresponding @connect.hku.hk email address) within 7 days after Master Registration. To change, please go to HKU Portal > Campus Information Services > Central IT Services > Change UID.
* Request for changing the UID after the deadline (for students) or application submission (for staff) will only be considered by a written request to ITS stating the reason for late application. Each late request, if accepted, will be charged at HK$200 to recover part of the administrative overhead.
Email alias is an alternative name for receiving email e.g. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (for students using HKU Connect email service). While HKU Portal UID (email account name) is made of 4 to 8 characters, email alias can have 9 to 32 characters with any combination of alphabets, numbers and special characters "-", ".", "_".
