MyUH Troubleshooting Tips

In general, many problems with connecting to or using MyUH can be fixed by these things:

When logging in, I get an "Account Disabled" error message. How do I fix this?

There are two main causes for this error message:

  1. You have attempted to login with the incorrect password too many times.

    MyUH will automatically disable your account for a short time after too many login failures (the more failures, the longer the time the account is disabled). If your account is disabled for this reason, you should wait a few minutes and then try again. If this does not fix the problem, or if you need to login immediately, you should contact the ITS Help Desk to get your account reenabled.

  2. You do not have a current affiliation with the University and you are unable to access MyUH.

    MyUH is available to current affiliates (faculty, staff, and students) and former students who have enrolled in 'Ohana online services. If you do not fall into this category, and your UH Username has been deprovisioned, you will not be able to access MyUH and its services.

    Former students who have NOT enrolled in 'Ohana online services cannot access MyUH and will need to contact their campus' Admissions and Records office to request an official transcript, or access to tax information.

If you were a previous affiliate (faculty, staff, or student), and have recently rejoined the UH Community as an active affiliate, you may need to wait five to ten minutes for the system to restore your access to MyUH. If, after waiting, you still get this error, contact the ITS Help Desk to get your MyUH access restored.

I time out very soon after logging into MyUH.

I've been seeing a page saying that MyUH is down, but it's past the date/time listed on the page.

Clear your cache, then go to and see if you now get the login page.

In addition, MyUH will be unavailable due to maintenance during the following times:

Service When Start End
MyUH Portal Nightly 2:00am 3:00am
Academic Services Nightly 2:00am 6:00am
Credit Card and Web Payment 2nd Thursday of each month 10:00pm 2:00am (next day)





I am unable to connect to MyUH (I cannot reach the login page).

You can try these things:

  • Clear your cache
  • Allow as trusted site for popups and cookies in all toolbars and security software
  • Allow as a trusted site in any firewall software or hardware. Note: many routers and wireless access points are also hardware firewalls.

When I click on the "Get a UH Username" link, I get "page not found".

This page requires access through port 8888. If you are trying to access the page from a non-UH network such as a commercial business, they might have a firewall implemented on their network and not allow access through port 8888. You should check with your company's IT if there is a firewall in place.

If you are at home, make sure your software or hardware firewall (many routers and wireless access points also have a built in firewall) allows access through port 8888.

When I try to open Google@UH Gmail through MyUH portal, the window doesn't open/load.
