link blue Account

What is your link blue account?

University of Kentucky Analytics and Technologies created the term link blue 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 link blue account is created within two business days of when you are accepted as a student or entered into payroll as an employee. The link blue account must be activated in the Account Manager in order to login to any of the services.
