Monarch-Key Web Login

Monarch-Key Web Login lets you access ODU's essential academic and professional services with your MIDAS ID and password. Once you have authenticated to Monarch-Key, you can navigate from one service to another without having to log in again.

Session Timeout

For security reasons, Monarch-Key sessions will time out after one hour; if you launch a web application more than an hour after the initial authentication, you will be prompted to log in to the system again.

Exit Browser to Log Out

Logging out of a web-authenticated service is not guaranteed until the user has properly exited the browser window. When all Monarch-Key Web Login sessions are completed the browser must be 'Closed' (Windows) or 'Quit' (Apple) to ensure the user is logged out of every service.

Two-Factor Authentication

Because compromised MIDAS credentials pose a risk to protected data and critical services, ODU requires all students, faculty and staff to log in to University services using two-factor authentication. Learn more here.
