linkblue Account

What is your linkblue account?

University of Kentucky Analytics and Technologies created the term linkblue to define the user account (user ID and password) used to connect to many campus-wide systems, including myUK, Blackboard, Canvas and APEX Degree Planner.

Your linkblue account is created within two business days of when you are accepted as a student or entered into payroll as an employee. The linkblue account must be activated in the Account Manager in order to login to any of the services.

Finding Your linkblue Account Information


Your linkblue user ID and Student ID number should be provided in your Acceptance Letter from the University of Kentucky. If you have received your Acceptance Letter, but have not yet received your User ID, you may contact Customer Services.

Faculty & Staff

Your UK linkblue user ID and UK ID number should be provided to your hiring official who will relay this information to you. If your hiring official has not received your user ID please contact Customer Services.

*Account Manager is your resource for activating your linkblue account; resetting your linkblue password; managing your password self-reset questions; and more.
