Reasons you may not be able to log-in to your account include:
CougarNet ID versus PeopleSoft ID
Most library accounts will require your CougarNet ID.
Writing your entire email address will not work (e.g. email@example.com). Only your alias is needed to log-in (i.e. the part before the @cougarnet.uh.edu).
Your interlibrary loan (ILL) account may use a unique username and password. Why can't I log-in to my ILL account?
Copying and pasting your credentials
Do not copy and paste your CougarNet ID and password to log-in. Copying and pasting sometimes adds an extra space, which will result in a log-in failure.
If you are a new student, you will not be able to log-in until the first day of classes.
Too many log-in attempts
Accounts are locked after five failed log-in attempts. You can try to log-in again after thirty minutes.
Reset your password
If none of the above works, you can try resetting your resetting your CougarNet password.
