Capilano University now uses Single Sign-On (SSO) to log you into your email, eLearn and certain other applications. 

How Single Sign-On works

On Campus

When you sign on to your workstation or any other Campus computer, Single Sign-On will use your login information to automatically log you into to SSO enabled applications when they are opened.

If you use your own laptop or mobile device, you may be prompted for a login when opening an SSO enabled application. This is designed to happen once. Once you've logged in to an SSO application you should not have to log in a second time. 

Always log off or lock your workstation to keep your account secure when you are away from your computer.

Off Campus

If you open a CapU application while off-campus (at home or in a Wifi hotspot) you may be prompted to enter your CapU account. You can log in once and shouldn't be prompted again unless you close your browser.

Logging in to Single Sign-On

If prompted, enter your username or email (in the form of firstnamelastname e.g. johnsmith5) in the Username field and your password in the Password field and tap Sign in.

You should see the following page if prompted for an SSO-enabled login:  

Applications that use Single Sign-On

  • Outlook365 Email
  • all Office365 apps
  • eLearn (Moodle)
  • WebEx
