User Name Instructions

A User Name is a unique name that you define on your online application for this property. The User Name will automatically default to your email address. It should be changed to a new unique User Name if you are entering multiple online applications for many individuals, or if you plan to apply for other MDHA properties. Here are some User Name examples:

  • User Name Example 1:

I’m an individual and I want to be on the Parthenon Towers waiting list. I can use my email address for my User Name, but I can also define my User Name to be a unique name that I can use exclusively for this property. Example: My name is Jane Doe and I’m applying for the Parthenon Towers waiting list. So, I’ve decided to make my User Name be jdoeparthenon19. This unique User Name will always be associated with my Parthenon Towers Waiting List online application that I created on 3/28/2019.

  • User Name Example 2:

I’m a social worker and I’m entering many online applications for my clients who do not have an email address or access to a computer. I can enter my email address for each online application, but I must create a unique User Name for each online application that I enter. Refer to the previous example if your client plans to apply at other MDHA properties.
