A Campus ID is a serial number that is given to everyone with a UWM affiliation. Campus ID numbers consist of two sections. The first section is nine digits and usually starts with "99". The second section consists of two digits and is separated from the first nine by a space. A user's Campus ID number is confidential information and is akin to a Social Security Number. A Campus ID can be located on a student's PantherCard.

A compromised account is an account with login details known by one or more unauthorized individuals. At UWM, these accounts may be identitifed by either our UWM Information Security Office or by Microsoft. Symptoms of compromised accounts include sending spam emails, or sending unusual volumes of emails.
Once an account has been identified as having been compromised, the password for the account will be scrambled, and the account holder will require assistance from the Help Desk to unlock the account.
A Computer Name is a unique identifier issued to every university owned device.
Current university computers use the following convention: (UWM or WAK)(6 digit Asset ID) (e.g. UWM001234).
Older computers may follow other conventions, such as (Department)-(Building/room)-(computer number) (e.g. CCL-BOL225-11), and (SA)-(Service Tag) (e.g. SA-1A2B3C4).
For a desktop computer, the label with the computer name is usually found on the top or side of the tower.
