NetID

The NetID is your unique computer account, comprised of letters and numbers. Your NetID credentials identify you as a UConn student and enable you to access electronic resources on campus, such as the PeopleSoft Student Administration (SA) System, your HuskyCT online course tools and technology resources in the residence halls. Your NetID remains with you throughout your career at UConn.

Note: The NetID activation process can only be used if the NetID is new and has not previously been activated. If you do not have a social security number, you need an activation code to proceed. You will receive two email messages; the first contains your NetID, the second contains your activation code.

For assistance, contact the UITS Help Center at 860-486-4357 or email helpcenter@uconn.edu. Any University account password is the property of the student and as such, is not released to parents and/or third parties.
