Transfer from the Zengaku ID to the Nagoya University ID:

In January 2008, the new Nagoya University ID was introduced. Along with this change, the Zengaku ID, which had been issued by the Information Technology Center, was discontinued in November 2007.

In order to facilitate the transfer for users, we have taken measures for the transition period where both the Nagoya University ID and the Zengaku ID can be used for user authentication and where the same password is used for both the Zengaku ID and the Nagoya University ID.
