UC Merced Connect is the centralized campus communications platform that offers necessary, timely, and useful information to our students, faculty, and staff, as well as to prospective students, parents, external partners, and the general public. The Connect platform serves as a central digital gateway to UC Merced, offering simplified access to campus resources, information, and personalized messaging. The application can be accessed via web browser or as a mobile app for both Android and iOS devices.
Desktop users can log in to the UC Merced Connect Platform using a web browser (Google Chrome, Internet Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari etc.) at connect.ucmerced.edu.
Mobile users can download the app from the links below:
Users need to have an active UCMNetID in order access the authenticated information within the MyMerced section of the platform.
The MyMerced section of the Connect platform includes personalized content, links, and information specific to each UC Merced user. (In order to see personalized information, users must select the app persona that best reflects their primary association with campus.)
In the other sections of the platform, users also have access to common information related to campus resources, events, housing, dining, work tools, etc. The platform also includes a communications component. Users will occasionally receive important campus messages via the platform and can also opt-in to receive more messages from campus groups and departments that they are interested in.
Connect content is controlled, written, and managed by individual campus units who chose to participate with approval by a campus governance board.
UC Merced Connect support is available from the OIT Service Desk during normal campus business hours (8:00 a.m. –5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday).
The platform is available 24/7 via connect.ucmerced.edu and the mobileapp. Log-in access to authenticated content within the platform is dependent upon an active UCMNetID.
There is no cost for this service.
