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 three 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. If you are not a current faculty, staff, or student of the University and your grace period to enroll in 'Ohana online services has ended, you will no longer be able to login to MyUH.

    MyUH is only available for current faculty, staff, and students. Former students who have enrolled in 'Ohana online services can check their unofficial transcripts by going to STAR. Former students who have not enrolled in 'Ohana online services will need to contact their campus' Admissions and Records office to request an official transcript. Former faculty, staff, or students trying to check email can do so through UH WebMail.

  3. You were previously a faculty, staff, or student of the University and have recently rejoined the UH Community as a faculty, staff, or student.

    MyUH access is removed from a former faculty, staff, or student once their UH Username grace period has ended. When rejoining the UH Community, it takes five to ten minutes to restore MyUH access (during peak usage times, such as registration periods, this could be up to a couple hours). Try waiting five to ten minutes to access MyUH. If, after waiting, you still get this error, contact the ITS Help Desk to get your MyUH access restored.

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

Clear your cache, then go to http://myuh.hawaii.edu and see if you now get the login page.


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

You can try these things:

  • Clear your cache
  • Allow myuh.hawaii.edu as trusted site for popups and cookies in all toolbars and security software
  • Allow myuh.hawaii.edu 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 compose an email message in MyUH, there is no place to type the message body.
