Welcome Scholars

The members of Information Technology Services (ITS) warmly welcome you to the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School. ITS provides computing, media, and network services for the Law School community.

Learn more about our team on our Who’s ITS page.

Your Law School Accounts: LawKey & PennKey

LawKey and PennKey are the computing logins used at the Law School.

LawKey (aka your Office 365 login) is used to access Office 365 resources (Email, OneDrive, Teams) as well as login to classroom computers.

PennKey is used to access the wireless network (AirPennNet) as well as Canvas, password protected Law webpages, and University wide resources.

Both accounts use the same username, but need to be activated separately. Please set different passwords for each account. More information: LawKey & PennKey guides

Multifactor Authentication (MFA) and Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) are required to be set up for both your LawKey and PennKey accounts at the time of activation.
