The UPI system manages the allocation of UPIs and the transfer of accurate person data between systems. The Services System is a key component of UPI as it's the tool by which departments can record details of their visitors, allocate a UPI to them and then request UCL services for them, whether that's an ID card, a computer account, library access or a phone line.
The data is used in a number of ways as listed below:

UPI as a data key
(contact details for staff, students & visitors)
(the place to change your directory preferences)
|Computer Reps and Account Help tools|
Finding the UPI for people in your department
The simplest way to lookup and find the UPI for a person currently at UCL is to log into the UCL Directory. Search for the person, then click the Login option on the search results page. The UPI will appear for each person in the search results list.
