The University of Kentucky Information Technology Services (ITS) created the term "linkblue" to define a directory account (user id and password) which can be used when connecting to many campus-wide systems, including myUK, Canvas and myUK GPS (Graduation Planning System).

Your linkblue account is created within a business day of when, as a student you are accepted, or as an employee you are entered into payroll. The linkblue account must be activated to login to many services. Detailed instructions on activating an account are available on the Activating Your Account page. For further linkblue information, visit

Students, faculty, and staff should use their linkblue ID to sign in to Microsoft 365 and Google Gmail (Google Workspace). To sign in, use your username and linkblue password.  Additional information is available in the Tech Help Center at
