Accounts & Passwords

In this section

Members of the LMU community have various accounts (username and password) for access to ITS resources. ITS centrally manages these accounts, integrating many of them to the Identity Management system. If you find that you need to change your password for any reason, review the instructions near the login area of MYLMU. Assistance is also available through the ITS Service Desk.

  • With the Workday implementation, you will have the ability to request a preferred name. In Workday, click your profile picture > View Profile > Personal  (Click More on the left bar if you do not see this displayed) > Names tab > edit Preferred Name.

    To see which systems will be populated with your preferred name, click here. You will be prompted to login to LMU Box to see this list.

  • Choosing a strong password

    A good password...

    • is not guessable by any program in a reasonable time (less than one week).
    • is easily remembered (so there is no need to write it down).
    • is private (it is used and known by one person only).
    • is secret (it does not appear in clear text in any file or program or on a piece of paper pinned to the terminal).

    Why should I choose good passwords?

    The use of a bad password may allow someone to use your account and therefore to use, modify, corrupt or destroy any of your files or any files that you are allowed to modify. You are ultimately responsible for your accounts even if you intentionally or unintentionally compromise your account by providing your password to others.

    How do I set my password reset security questions?

    • Go to
    • Enter your current LMU credentials.
    • You’ll be presented with 10 questions, but you only have to answer 3 of them.

    I need to reset my password because I have forgotten it, or it has expired.

    • Go to
    • Click on Reset Your Password.
    • If you have not already set your password security questions, you will be asked to verify your identity with the last four digits of your SSN and DOB prior to setting your password.
    • If you have set your password security questions, you will be presented with 2 of the 3 questions that you previously set answers for.
    • If you have problems answering the questions, call the ITS Service Desk at 310-338-7777 during regular business hours.
