Upcoming Changes to the PLU Login Page

As part of the second phase of the PLU’s website redesign that Marketing and Communication has been working on, the PLU login page that is used to access many of our campus resources will be changing.  The new page is scheduled to be put into place on August 10th and there are a few things we would like you to be aware of as we transition to the new design (see a preview of the new design below).

  • Beginning on August 10th, instead of being directed to https://allotropa.plu.edu when logging into a PLU resource, the URL presented will be https://weblogin.plu.edu.  Please make note of this and always check for this URL if you have reason to question the legitimacy of the site.

  • All links to technical support and relevant campus resources will still be available on the page; however, they will be in a different location with the new layout.

  • The new layout benefits from a responsive design, significantly improves accessibility and is much more mobile friendly.

  • You will now have an option to view your password while typing if needed to verify it is being entered correctly prior to logging in.

  • After the change on August 10th, you should no longer trust login pages that will have the old design.  Mimicking login pages is a common tactic that phishing attackers use to collect personal information.
