An HMS account is required to access HMS IT services like email, collaboration shares, wireless networks, research clusters, and MyHMS.

HMS accounts are automatically created for those with a Harvard University ID (HUID) issued by Harvard Medical School, the School of Dental Medicine, and the School of Public Health. Faculty and staff based at HMS-affiliated hospitals also qualify for an HMS account.

Your HMS account credentials consist of your HMS account ID and a password you set during activation.

Before using an HMS account, you must activate it. Follow the instructions on activating your HMS account.
