The look of the SOLAR login page where SBU community members type their Stony Brook ID number in order to access the SOLAR System (formerly a largely uncustomized Oracle PeopleSoft page) changed on July 8, 2015.

DoIT's University Information Systems (UIS) team unveiled a new look which makes logging into SOLAR easier, faster, and more mobile friendly. The page also provides better communication about SOLAR status events.

The SOLAR login page is one of the most-visited pages on the SBU network. Normal traffic sees about 10,000 hits per day with peak usage topping 40,000. These users are almost unanimously Stony Brook faculty, staff and students. UIS saw this as an opportunity to create a much better experience for the community.

SOLAR Login Re-Design Goals

 - Make it clear and easy to log in
 - Make it easy to get help since one of the biggest support requests DoIT receives is SOLAR password help requests
 - Notify users about status events related to SOLAR
 - Provide a great experience on mobile devices as well as desktops
 - Reinforce the SBU brand and colors
