I am a professor. Where can I find my Community Lookup Key?

Your Community Lookup Key is the code students can use to search for your community with the Packback system. If you choose not to upload a roster at the beginning of your term, the Community Lookup Key will be what students use to get registered.

What does the Community Lookup Key Look Like?

It appears as a 32-digit alphanumeric code with dashes (i.e. XXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX).

Where Can I Find My Community Lookup Key?

Your Community Feed

You can grab your Community Lookup Key directly from your community as well. Just go to your Professor Tools box, which is located on the right hand side of your community. Your Community Lookup Key is located in a white box at that top.
