NetID/Password

What is a NetID?

All NYU faculty, staff, and matriculated students enrolled in degree or diploma programs, are provided with an NYU NetID (Network IDentification). Your NetID is a combination of your initials and a few numbers, (e.g., aqe123).  Once activated, your NetID provides access to authorized NYU online services and applications.  Your NetID is also used to create your default NYU Email address (e.g., aqe123@nyu.edu).
