What’s a PID?

The Person ID Number (PID) is a number that an official university department gives to everyone connected to the university. This number is meant to give everyone at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill a unique PID or Person ID. The number has nine characters and replaces all card numbers that have been used on campus before. The PID is the main way all university offices keep track of records and must be used for all contact.

How To Set up your account

The UNC nickname is ONYEN, which means “Only Name You’ll Ever Need.” Onyen is the name of UNC’s universal login, which lets you access many computer tools on campus, including UNC email, also called heelmail. Even though it is a word, you can think of it as an acronym for “Only Name You’ll Ever Need.”
