Highlander Community, 

Deployment of UCR’s new identity and access management (IAM) solution, IAMRiverside, is scheduled to commence the afternoon of March 16, 2023, and conclude in the early morning hours of March 20, 2023

The modernization of our campus IAM infrastructure will greatly improve UC Riverside’s security posture and streamline the user account lifecycle. 

Planning for IAMRiverside commenced over two years ago and has involved engagement with various stakeholder groups across campus. I would like to thank all of those who have been involved in this mission-critical effort. 

The deployment of IAMRiverside is a vital first step in bolstering campus security, expediting student and employee onboarding, and improving the overall efficiency and effectiveness of identity and access management at UCR.

Due to the scope and technical complexity of this infrastructure change, please note that some campus services will be impacted during the stated deployment window. I highly encourage you to visit to learn what you can expect to experience during the deployment window, as well as the resources and support available to you. 

Thank you for your understanding and partnership as we work to strengthen and modernize the identity and access management architecture that supports learning, teaching, working, and conducting research at UCR.
